Best Spots for a 'Green' Vacation
Last week, I offered a doomsday road trip of sorts, suggesting some naturally beautiful places around the world to visit before global warming and human folly change them beyond recognition.

Here are five ways to travel this summer to appreciate people and places that are finding a sustainable balance of commerce, tourism and environmental friendliness.
Indulge in Wine Appreciation
Napa and Sonoma wineries are exploring myriad ways to go green -- some by adapting organic farming and productions standards, some by going biodynamic and others by employing sustainable methods that combine the first two along with conventional farming in whatever mix they believe best balances their interests as business people and land owners who want to see their vineyards endure.
