Hurray for some smart Boulders

Now this is smart. I want to live in Boulder, Colorado. They will be assessing a charge on business and residents for how much carbon they use based on their electric bills. Seems as though they use coal to run the power plants. The money will fund audits of users that will help them conserve electricity. The tax will be less that two dollars a month for residents and if they already use wind power they don't pay the tax.

It's a small step but ya gotta start somewhere. The imaginative residents of Boulder actually voted for this. Can you imagine the TV ads if this was tried in California? I shudder at the thought.
