A Green Victory


An intriguing Earth Day story out of the U.K., where an executive who sued a big property firm after he said he got sacked
for his green views won a landmark legal battle
- and a generous settlement - when a judge ruled that his
philosophical convictions on climate change deserve the same workplace
protection as religious beliefs. Tim Nicholson, 42, accused other
executives of failing to cut carbon emissions and driving "the most
polluting cars on the road."
