Re: [carfree_cities] urban mobility study
- Good stuff Pat. But it's mainly employee focused. That's fine, but it's
not enough traffic reduction.
My proposal would be available to even people who don't have a job. In
that sense, it would be good for the poor. Give them some extra money.
Better than nothing.
But mostly it would be aimed at commuters who come from outside the city.
Those are the folks who are ruining the cities with all the extra
driving and pollution, and who contribute the most greenhouse gases that
are known now to be causing the warming. It is much more radical. It
would pay $2,800 for an individual to not drive at all. The money would
also come from raising fuel taxes by $.50 a gallon.
When someone question the sanity of it, just ask them if they would
preferred global warming to go out of control. Then ask them who's
sensible and who isn't.
