The UN recently released a report, and it stated that environmental groups should focus on making smaller, ongoing changes; instead of one large comprehensive climate change legislation.
Finally something good comes out of the UN.
Think about it, ten smaller, smarter changes that make our communities cleaner, safer, better; is worth more than one large, lumbering bill.
For example: Subsidize home and property owners to purchase energy efficient upgrades to their homes.
Change complicated zoning and building laws to make better use of space and materials, and allow a better integration of retail, business, and residential.
There ya go: two good ideas.
