This past weekend I was proud to be one of 400,000 concerned citizens participating in the People's Climate March that took place in New York City -- by far the biggest climate march in history.

A new innovative urban rain garden has been installed in downtown Washington, D.C. along the 19th Street corridor. The planted area is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat. It is great to see and hopefully there will be more of these urban rain gardens sprouting up around town so the nation's capital can become the greenest city in America and the world.

On a recent train trip from Wilmington, Delaware to Washington, D.C. I had the pleasure of riding on a Northeast Regional train with Amtrak's new Cities Sprinter electric locomotive designed by Siemens. The Sprinter is energy efficient and offers a smoother and faster ride. A smart infrastructure investment to improve passenger rail service on the Northeast Corridor.
This past Sunday I checked out Metro's new Silver Line Phase One that runs from Largo Town Center in Maryland, through The District, into Arlington along the Orange Line route where it splits off between East Falls Church and West Falls Church and follows the Dulles Access-Toll Road until it elevates and makes its way towards the Tysons area where there are four new stations -- McLean, Tysons Corner, Greensboro and Spring Hill. Then the Silver Line rolls down to ground level and back to the median of the Dulles Access-Toll Road as it travels to its final destination -- Wiehle-Reston East.
