Best Environmentalist: Paul Robbins

Spend a few hours watching local government and chances are you'll see Paul Robbins. The self-described “environmental activist and consumer advocate,” clad in large glasses and an ever-present tweed sports coat, is a perennial presence at meetings, offering alternately droll, combative, and informed takes on topics from energy purchases to water conservation. He's also publisher of the periodic Austin Environmental Directory, a comprehensive assemblage of green issues from the hyperlocal to worldwide.
