America is the world’s second largest greenhouse gases emitter and thus needs to act. It seems it is the case as the local Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may cut emissions from the energy and industry sectors as early as 2011.
This is good news as 70 percent of US emissions come from them. Additionally, the Climate Bill now discussed in the Senate is more aggressive on greenhouse gases emissions than the earlier version reviewed in June.
I am confident that a global strong agreement on climate can be reached either in December in Copenhagen or next year as more and more countries are moving on climate change mitigation.
