Berkeley's Green Motors Closed Weeks Shy of Second Anniversary
BERKELEY — Even in one of the greenest cities in America, Green Motors couldn't survive.
Berkeley, a city which for years has held high ranks on environmental organization's annual lists of eco-conscious do-gooders, was ranked as the second greenest city in the United States last year by MSN.com.
It was the first city to ban plastic foam, the first city to ask residents to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050, and the first city to offer help with solar financing. Berkeley has a fleet of city hybrid vehicles, a maze of designated bicycles lanes and a mayor who walks to work.
