State Pushing for Low Carbon Planning

To be filed under: Great idea, hope something comes of it.

California Attorney General Edmund Brown Jr. is hosting a conference to teach how to use city planning to reduce carbon emissions.

This is great news, but also, like the saying goes, "you can lead a horse to water..." I hope that these city and county planners are able to use this information to make their areas more environmentally friendly. I also hope that a special emphasis is being put on promoting cycling, which as I have said before and will continue to say, solves many local problems especially smog and traffic congestion.
