Austin Places #3 in the Most Visited Cities with the Lowest Carbon Footprint

Some study shows that reducing each person's carbon footprint minimizes the damage in climate change.  We can do our part by reducing our waste and the amount of energy we use, shopping locally, walking or riding a bike to avoid carbon emissions, not setting the too high and low thermostat of your heater or air conditioning when at home, and more.  

Austin places #3 among the 50 most visited Cities in the U.S. with the lowest carbon footprint.  In 1991, Austin introduced the Austin Energy Green Building Program, which helps public and private building professionals to build green projects, and enriches the community's environment, economic and human well-being.  It is the first rating system in the U.S. to evaluate the sustainability of buildings that inspires many cities to follow.
