ABSTRACT
The article discusses the various land use strategies in the U.S. aimed at lessening greenhouse gas emissions as of early 2012, as well as their effects on lower-income individuals and communities of color. It focuses on the "Sustainable Communities Strategy" law that was adopted in California, particularly its implementation in the Sacramento and San Francisco Bay Area regions. The other topics discussed include low carbon fuels, replacement housing, and California's Housing Element Law.
