A Green Stimulus?
The Obama Administration touted the economic stimulus plan as a major investment in America’s transition to a clean energy future. But how green did the stimulus package actually turn out? Terra Verde explores the environmental pros and cons of the stimulus bill, and what it means for the Bay Area.
Michelle Chan interviews Greenbelt Alliance Policy Director Carey Knecht and Research Associate Elena Foshay from the Apollo Alliance.
“At Greenbelt Alliance one of things we’re looking at is the upcoming reauthorization of the transportation bill… the stimulus package was a wake-up call for cities and regions to really get ready to use that money well. To make it possible for people to drive less, if we want to address climate change, it depends on building neighborhoods where people can walk or bike to where they need to go.”
