Report cites environmental progress in Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - An advocacy group says Alabama made
significant progress in environmental protection in 2008, with
greater use of alternative energy and tougher standards aimed at
more than 50 cancer-causing pollutants.

The Birmingham-based Green Resource Center for Alabama, a
nonprofit organization formed in 2007, released its Green Gauge
report Monday.

The report lists about two dozen instances of progress in
advancing environmental causes in Alabama, which has struggled with
urban air pollution and other environmental threats.

GRC president Scott Walton said possibly the single greatest
accomplishment of the year has been raising awareness about
environmental protection.
