Morning Brew: February 27th, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Tuesday February 27th, 2007:

Enviro-guru Amory Lovins told the Toronto Summit Alliance that the GTA is missing out of huge savings due to easily tackled inefficiencies in our energy uses. Making money from efforts to curb climate change may be a way to sway those that still deny the problem.

I'm dreading the next time I need to buy gas (I've been lucky and not yet needed to buy much since the prices skyrocketed). Apparently, execs can't tell us when the normal pricing and supply will return, but the shortages could still be problematic until late March or even April.

Heads up! Emergency Services, OPP, and Toronto Police are reminding us how important it is to pull over and get out of the way of passing emergency response vehicles. CityTV is hosting a public service video (not for the faint of heart!) that highlights what can happen if we don't get out of the way.

Will a window sticker for businesses that pay higher than the $8 minimum wage attract ethical shoppers (who can then enter and buy goods made by workers in China that make much less)?

Police are looking for a pervert that frequents the TTC subway system and grabs women.

Miller wants one cent ($400million), NOW!!!
