John Kerry has a new book out entitled This moment on Earth: Today's New Environmentalists and Their Vision for the Future.
Mr. Kerry praises Portland's urban planning in his book. He starts off by saying how Portland was the first major city to adopt a plan to reduce greenhouse gases back in 1993. He dedicates 7 pages to covering our local efforts. While the national emissions have risen 1% per capita, Portland's have fallen 11%. Guess what Portland. It's still a drop in the bucket.
