Berkeley Gets a Little Cooler
Seems that at its Tuesday meeting, the Berkeley City Council voted unanimously to include on the November ballot an initiative to reduce global warming emissions 80 percent by 2050. Pretty ambitious, though it's clearly the kind of bold action we have to take. And it averages out to less than 2 percent a year, which sounds less daunting.
It's great to see how so many cities are stepping into the breach to address global warming while the federal government fiddles.
