Richardson on energy and municipalities

Democratic presidential candidate (and former Secretary of Energy) Bill Richardson makes the makes the point that land use and transportation policies are keys to solving the energy puzzle.

These are municipal and regional issues that are not going to be solved with broad strokes, but with diligent incremental change and regional coordination and cooperation.

But, I do think there is a state and federal role in establishing policies that promote smart growth and greater transit availability.
