The Buffalo Niagara region is facing major environmental problems with sprawl, air pollution, poor water quality, and numerous brownfields. But with its abundant water, wind, and solar resources, Buffalo Niagara also has the potential to be a major hub for clean, green energy. By protecting and restoring our waterways, we can take advantage of our location on the Great Lakes and the Niagara River. Local and state governments need to understand that the most competitive cities of the future will be the greenest: cities that promote mass transit, green buildings, and the conservation of energy, water, and habitats.
