And for news on a Carbon-Free City…
A couple of days ago, Business 2.0 reported that the world’s first carbon-free city is in the plans to being built. Smack in the middle of the oil-rich Middle East, the city Masdar will cut its electricity bill by harnessing renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, and geothermal energy. They’re also planning to make a total ban on cars within the city.
