‘Carbon Free Boston’ Puts Priority on Land Use and Transportation Planning


Imagine having to drive an electric car, if you drive a vehicle at all. And if you drive into Boston, you’d have to pay a congestion fee.

Every building in the city would be retrofitted for energy efficiency. All fossil-fuel burning appliances would be converted to electric, too. And we would cut down on many items that end up in the trash, like the city did recently with plastic bags.

The Boston Green Ribbon Commission released its “Carbon Free Boston” [pdf] report this week, laying out steps to help the entire city achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
