The city of Seattle announced this afternoon that its greenhouse gas emissions in 2008 were 7 percent below what they were in 1990 — a target the city had hoped to meet by 2012.

The declines have come in every major category — homes, commercial buildings, heavy industry — except transportation. Some reductions have been huge, mostly owing to conservation measures and investments by Seattle City Light in renewable energy, and a move away from oil burning for heat.

As Mayor Nickels has stated, Seattle is “walking the walk and talking the talk” pledging to meet the kyoto protocol’s standards despite a ratification of the treaty by congress. This is good news for our city as we are organically and naturally lowering our emissions even though population has growin 16% since 1990, and with help from the failing economy.. Seattle is well-known to be the “greenest city” in the US and is taking strides to meet goals.
