Inside Climate News has an excellent summary of Obama’s recent executive order on carbon emissions..
For myself, I think President Obama has hit the nail on the head once again.
You can’t get to an adequate policy in one step from no policy at all. President Obama again proves himself a master of making as much lemonade as possible out of the lemons he has at hand. The man is brilliant, and the flaws in this plan are not remotely his fault, in my opinion. Further a 30% cut by 2030 is precisely on track to an 80% cut by 2050, which is precisely what we ought to be targeting globally.
I think we should support Prof. Obama on this. Do you?
