Greenville A Cool City

On a day as hot as Tuesday, it seems ironic to call any place "cool." But a city in Eastern Carolina can claim that as the truth.

Greenville joins 18 other cities across the state as being designated a cool city by the Sierra Club. It's the first city in Eastern Carolina to achieve "cool city" status. As proof of Greenville's earth conscious efforts, city leaders unveiled a hybrid vehicle as part of the fire-rescue's fleet.

The cool cities program is based on local mayors signing the U.S. mayors climate protection agreement. The main objective is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by seven percent by 2012.
