7. CLINTON SAYS SUSTAINABILITY HAS TO BE PRIORITY

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a gathering of 10,000 advocates for green construction Thursday that sustainability must be one of the country's top priorities.

Clinton, considered an potential contender for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, pulled on her experience as first lady, a U.S. Senator and the nation's top diplomat during a speech in Philadelphia at a conference at a conference presented by the U.S. Green Building Council. She told the conventioneers that they should continue to talk about their ideas in hopes of swaying more people that it makes ecological and financial sense.

"At the top of any agenda about America's future, sustainability has to be viewed as one of the key goals," she said in the speech at Temple University.

She talked about how she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had windows, heaters and even light bulbs replaced to make the White House more energy efficient. As a senator, Clinton said she supported green school buildings and, as secretary of the state, required new embassies and consulates to meet environmental standards while also encouraging other countries to impose environmental regulations.
