While many cities have tried to reduce their impact on the environment (San Francisco, Boulder, Seattle, Portland, Berkeley), only Austin, Texas has actually committed to becoming carbon neutral in the future. Other cities have aspired to the same goal, but the current economic hardships have prevented these environmental programs from coming to fruition. California is one of the leaders in reducing emissions — Californians passed a landmark law that “uses regulatory and market mechanisms” to lower and eventually eliminate greenhouse gases or GHGs. The law seeks to reduce GHG emissions to the level they were at in 1990 by 2020. By 2050, GHGs will be lowered by over 80%.
This blog post from late last year calls for Seattle to reduce its emissions to nothing by the year 2030.
