(p.259) 16 Urban Policy Effects on Carbon Mitigation
The Design and Implementation of US Climate Policy

Matthew E. Kahn

University of Chicago Press

This chapter considers the implications of urban policies on carbon mitigation, using different data sets to evaluate whether urban residents drive less and use public transportation more than people living in the suburbs. Using the 2005 Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS), it also examines the differences in residential energy consumption between urban and suburban households, and compares how energy consumption varies across the nation.

Keywords:   urban policies, carbon mitigation, urban residents, public transportation, suburbs, RECS, residential energy, energy consumption, suburban households
