Bloomberg's Green Plan
Mayor Bloomberg announced his vision for a greener city yesterday, Earth Day.
I, personally, really like some of his proposals, particularly the congestion tax. With 1 million new residents expected by 2030, it is time to start thinking of ways to improve the air quality of the city. Whether or not you are a believer in global warming, anyone who has blown their nose after an afternoon walking around the city (for those who haven’t, the tissue ends up black), can appreciate the idea of better air quality.
The idea of congestion pricing is likely to be controversial and unpopular, but I believe it is worth the inconvenience if the end result is a cleaner, more livable city.
I also love the plan for more bike paths!
