New Jersey to counter global warming

Courier Post (New Jersey): Imagine a "zero-waste" Garden State, widespread use of electric or hydrogen fuel cell cars and green buildings that conserve energy and water. That's one vision for the future to 2050 in a draft state report released recently.

…And a major concern in New Jersey is sea level rise because of global warming, the draft state report says. "The state is especially vulnerable to significant impacts" because of land subsidence, the topography of its coastline, coastal erosion and very dense coastal development, the report says.

…90 percent of development in New Jersey will be in areas with existing public infrastructure and 99 percent of that development will be redevelopment. All New Jersey residents will have alternative ways to get to work beyond single-occupancy vehicles.

…According to the plan, New Jersey Transit will commit $29.7 billion to keep the transit system in a state of good repair, build the proposed Trans-Hudson Express Tunnel (a rail tunnel) and complete other projects that could grow ridership over time….

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
