Innovation: Key to Reducing Carbon Emissions 15.7.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) unveiled a proposal to reduce carbon emissions aggressively -- by 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. It will create economic opportunities, improve public health especially among children and seniors, and curb the harmful impact of dirty power plants on the environment. It also avoids a potentially clumsy federal "one-size-fits-all" approach, by requiring and empowering each state to craft its own pollution reduction strategy. When each state is a laboratory, we are most likely to find the best practices. California is already leading the nation when it comes to bold action to cut carbon emissions. We are on target to cut carbon emissions statewide by 25 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. We are leaders in energy efficiency over recent decades -- it's estimated that we've lowered demand by 12.5 percent through efficiency, spurred by numerous policies including updated building efficiency standards and rebates for homeowners achieving energy ...
