The article presents the author's view concerning the carbon footprint mitigation, climate change, and spatial regulation as part of the political responsibility in Europe. The author cites that several governments from different countries around the world are still struggling to find the best solution in order to mitigate the environmental problems, particularly the reduction of carbon emission. Meanwhile, several nations in Europe have launched regulations for carbon mitigation particularly the transecting of the net greenhouse gas emission down to zero by 2050 and the construction of zero-carbon new housing by 2016.
