Forbes.com has recently released 2 studies that take a harsh look at the environmental and health situation in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our state is listed as the 49th “greenest” state in the nation, beating out only West Virginia (good thing we don’t really have mountains or we’d probably top them in mountain-top removal). And our city is listed as 16th “most sedentary” in the nation. Sadly, I feel like that listing is low.
A cultural shift is needed in this state, a state where changing the clocks is a major dilemma. The reason for starting this blog was to focus on positive developments as they occur in this city. Change is coming, and the city is slowly adjusting to it. However, we also need real leadership from the top level of our state in order to change our image as a backwards, polluting place.
