The Urban Future is Green

Big news out of Oslo, Norway. The capital city of a nation that produces nearly two billion barrels of oil a day announced that not only would its city centre be car free by 2019, it would also divest from fossil fuels by 2020. They also plan to halve emissions by 2020 and become fossil fuel free by 2030. In the run up to COP21, this is another indication that cities are leading the way on energy policy.
