Pew Climate Change Action Plan

Last week, the Pew Center on Global Climate Change released a 
comprehensive plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
in the United States.

"The "Agenda for Climate Action" identifies both broad
and specific policies, combining recommendations on
economy-wide  mandatory emissions cuts, technology development,
scientific research, energy supply, and adaptation
with critical steps that can be taken in key sectors.

The "Agenda" includes fifteen recommendations
that chart a climate-friendly path for the United States.
They have been designed to be both cost-effective
and comprehensive. Although putting all of the recommendations
into place will take time,there is a compelling
need to get started. Further delay will only make
the challenge before us more daunting and more costly."
