There's an effort being driven on Twitter right now to turn New York City green.
But not the kind of green we usually talk about around here; they literally want the city to be green.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is visiting New York City for the U.N. General Assembly and is making a big speech there today. Iranian activists campaigned to have the Empire State Building light up green to protest his speech -- green is the color of Mr. Ahmadinejad's opposition and the recent protests that broke out around disputed election results. In addition to the Empire State Building, protesters will form a mile long green banner across the Brooklyn Bridge and are asking that homes and businesses light their windows with green lights.
