A pair of UC Berkeley researchers tried to gauge the impact of different housing development strategies on that state's desire to meet its goal to reduce global warming gas emissions.

The researchers considered city planning that allowed for sprawl, had some in-fill housing and focused planning efforts on increasing density in cities.

The research was funded by the nonpartisan think tank Next 10.

The study found densely developed communities reduced the need to drive and that put fewer greenhouse gasses into the air.
