Remember when Oslo said it would ban cars from the city center in the next four years? And we were impressed? Well, it seems that Norway's capital isn't satisfied with such small gestures. Reuters is reporting that Oslo has just released its new "climate budget", and it's aiming for nothing less than a 50% reduction in emissions in the next four years.
How, might you ask? Here are just some of the measures being proposed:
—Raise tolls for cars to enter the city
—Cut parking spaces
—Phase out fossil-fuel heating in homes and offices
—Run the bus fleet on renewables
—Build more bike lanes
Still, to achieve big things you have to set big goals. And even if Oslo fell 50% short of its goals, it would still have achieved cuts at a scale and a pace not ever seen before.
