Some links

Here are a few that I’ve had kicking around for a week or two, waiting to be blogged. Here they are:

Singapore has a car tax of about $10,000 per car, which is there to combat their traffic congestion problems, and which goes toward their highly efficient mass transit system. Good thinking, south Asian brethren!

A couple useful clarifications about hybrid cars.

Changemakers has a contest with $5000 prizes to come up with ways to provide affordable housing. I’m interested in how to make affordable sustainable housing, so this is part of that.

A links page to government sites with recommendations for things we can do to fight climate change.

Two sites, Eco-Labels and Greener Choices related to Consumer Guide that provide info on more environmentally friendly products.

A blog post about planning and building cool cities (instead of the heat islands we have now).
