ABSTRACT

Fact Sheet: Taking Additional Action to Confront Climate Change   [open pdf - 36KB]

This fact sheet outlines a new (April 2008) national goal to stop the growth in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. "This new goal marks a major step forward in America's ongoing efforts to address climate change. If we fully implement our strong new laws, adhere to the principles the President outlined, and adopt appropriate incentives, we will put the United States on an ambitious new track for greenhouse gas reductions. The growth in emissions will slow over the next decade, stop by 2025, and begin to reverse thereafter, so long as technology continues to advance. Taken together, these landmark actions will prevent billions of metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere."
