New, 6 comments

UNIVERSAL CITY: Who would have thought that Universal Studios Hollywood would be a green leader, but apparently they are. From the press release: "Universal Studios Hollywod today became the first movie studio and theme park to introduce a solar powered golf cart as a means of employee transportation. The device, created to achieve savings in fossil fuel use and carbon emissions and to replace the familiar gas-powered studio transportation staples, was designed and manufactured by the Cruise Car company."
