Thanks, Lucy, for highlighting the very problematic nature of the Council's site choice. It is appalling that in 2008 a hotel like the Gaylord should be so environmentally irresponsible. They do not recycle anything. There is no option in rooms to save water and energy by not having sheets and towels laundered every day. The $15 "resort fee" included two bottles of water per day per room - in a county where the tap water is quite drinkable.

for the Council to patronize a resource-hogging, local economy-slaying site, on the one hand, and then offer registrants a plastic water bottle with an explicit conservation message, on the other, gave me a bad case of ethical whiplash.

Attendees should note that the Council's giveaway is made from #7 polycarbonite plastic, which contains bisphenol-A (BPA) - a chemical implicated in certain cancers and linked to hormone disruption.

I've wondered about the Council's relationship with reality for several years. The "summit" did nothing to reassure me.
