The Climate Takes a Hit

Sometimes we feel like a broken record here at the Express. During the past several years, we’ve written extensively about climate change and the most effective ways to combat it. As such, readers know that cars and trucks are among the primary causes of global warming, and that one of the most important things that we can do in the Easy Bay is to spur urban growth and limit suburban sprawl so that people will have shorter commutes — or better yet, will walk, bike, or take mass transit to work. However, the narrow defeat of two key ballot measures — B1 and T — in this month’s election will make it much more difficult to achieve those goals.
