Status of US Reducing CO2 Emissions

Dr. Steven Chu tells the BBC that the US won't be able to move as fast reducing emissions as proposed because of political pressures. Indeed, he thought the US Energy Department will need to grant permits to new coal-fired power plants even if they do not sequester carbon. Nevertheless, he was hopeful that once the US had started down the track to lowering CO2 emissions, the pace for cleanup could accelerate in the future with much less problem. The important thing is to get started.

I agree, additionally, we can all do our part, and even get started tomorrow. Just by choosing to purchase sustainable products, and products that require minimal manufacturing co2's etc. We can all make a difference in the here and now.
