City flunking climate change report card; Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; 3/12/09

City Flunking Climate Change Report Card Raise the Hammer - Hamilton,Ontario,Canada
What struck me about the report card is that the measures the city has more or less adopted - sponsoring a conference, taking an inventory of city GHG emissions, setting a tree canopy timetable, and establishing an after-hours lights-out program - are relatively trivial and don't require a significant transformation of the city's priorities.
They're mostly window dressing on a municipal system of land use and transportation that is still largely antithetical to real GHG reductions.
