Not so hot in the city

Food, Love and Policy By Unknown #2 on June 17, 2009
If you're looking to reduce your carbon footprint, move to the city. That should also help fill some of those condos that have been built downtown.

Seriously, we've all heard this before, but now the Chicago-based Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) has compiled a database of maps showing the CO2 usage per household by location. Choosing from a pull-down menu, you can select your region to view (Milwaukee-Racine is in there) and you'll see the map grow redder and angrier and less planet-friendly as you move away from the downtown areas into the 'burbs. Blame it on the car. Or the SUV. Or, goodness gracious, the Hummer.


Yes, urban living is inherently more green living. Though Milwaukee needs better transit and other green initiatives to make it even better. Posted by: Dave Reid | June 17 at 11:56 AM
