I did note that they give directions by train! Last time I went to a DEP presentation I had to find a train map and overlay it with the auto directions they provided. Who drives to Stamford, anyways?

1) Using a train would also result in greenhouse gas emissions. If you can't walk or ride a bike, why not stay home and read about it on the web? That would be the "Green" thing to do.

2) "No walk-ins will be permitted" "Attendees must furnish a State-issued Photo ID upon entry to the building. Bags are subject to inspection. No cameras or recording devices will be permitted." Whew! Sounds like a really *paranoid* group. This meeting be freely open to the public.

3) If Soundwaters was so concerned about greenhouse emissions, they should not be offering chartered parties on their schooner, which is partly diesel powered.
