Berkeley Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan Taking Shape

On the other hand, the Chron has a useful summary of Berkeley’s plan to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent in 42 years. It is as follows: more bike lanes; higher density housing along corridors like Shattuck and University Avenues; more car share programs; and a really clever plan to help low-income homeowners slap solar panels on their roofs. To pay for all this, the city is considering a carbon tax of about $2 per month on your utility bill, as well as raising parking meter rates. The carbon tax will have to go before the voters first.
