I think Emily Green's writing is wonderful-intelligent and clear ('Cow Madness in England," March 21). I even looked through the paper to find other articles that she might have written but couldn't find anything. ANNETTE O'TOOLE Via e-mail

Interest in the environment is heating up as fast as global warming. Contributions to the Sierra Club soared 33% last year, homeowners are installing solar panels, and even preschool children are recycling. At the same time, nonfiction filmmakers are trying to shape the ecological conversation, turning out an abundance of critically acclaimed, Earth-friendly documentaries. But three years after "An Inconvenient Truth" won over moviegoers and Oscar voters, many new works are suffering the same fate plaguing other intellectually engaging films: moviegoers would rather hug Transformers than trees.

The fading yet controversial green bike lane that stretches through downtown Los Angeles on Spring Street may be getting a fresh coat of paint that all - including the temperamental asphalt - can live with. Bicyclists and downtown residents love the highly visible 1.4-mile bike lane that runs from Cesar Chavez to 9th Street. But film and TV location scouts hate the fluorescent green ribbon that runs through the heart of the most popular filming location in Los Angeles. Under bright lights, this particular green bounces off every surface it hits (including actors' faces)

Location scouts are once again red-faced over the bright green bicycle lane in downtown Los Angeles. City officials painted a 1.5-mile strip of Spring Street neon green in 2011 for a bike lane as part of larger effort pushed by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to make streets safer and more inviting to cyclists. But the bike path still rankles location scouts and filmmakers, who see it as another hurdle to filming in Los Angeles. Their concern: The bright color would be a distraction to viewers, doesn't belong in period movies and makes it harder for L.A. to do what it does best: play other cities.

Located in northern Beijing, the Olympics complex is not just green in name. Many of its newly built structures have been designed to be more energy-efficient than traditional buildings. -- Source: 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics

I did not finish the article about the eco-minded Post Ranch Inn ("Go Ahead, Indulge," June 1) because I believe the only "green" the owners of this hotel are concerned with is of the folding variety. Alex Fernandez Lakewood

Thanks to Timothy Mangan for crediting me with outstanding participation as a soloist in the recent L.A. Philharmonic-Salonen Mahler Third concert review ("Salonen's Passion, Control Uplift Mahler's Third," Oct. 18). But Donald Green played the trumpet solo in the Mahler and, since he did so exceedingly well, it's a shame he did not receive the accolade. THOMAS STEVENS Los Angeles
