Green News Daily: Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

It’s the first day of spring, and in the spirit of the changing seasons, I am changing the Green News Roundup to the Green News Daily. New name, same great green news. Today’s highlights are a mish mash of stories, including T. Boone Pickens’ plan for 8 million CNG trucks, a wacky-but-efficient supersonic airplane, and the 2013 Nissan Leaf gets leather seats.
