In Support of the Cambridge Green New Deal Zoning Petition

Why I support the Green New Deal Zoning petition.

This is an email I have sent to Cambridge City Council in May 2021 in suport of the . You too can read and support the GND zoning proposal at

Dear Cambridge City Council members,

I am writing to strongly express my support for the Green New Deal Zoning Petition as described at The climate crisis is here, it is affecting everyone, and we must act quickly. The commercial real estate we got in our city emits a lot of greenhouse gases, and thus should be taxed to minimize this harm. I especially like how the money collected from the pollution is going to be used to lower the carbon emissions in the rest of Cambridge. If we are all in the same boat, let's all plug the holes in it before we sink.

Thank you, Gleb Bahmutov, PhD
