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 ...

In Heartland and Beyond, Businesses Get It: Not Cutting Carbon Pollution Is Risky Business 3.7.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
When it comes to the urgent need to cut carbon pollution and address climate change, businesses -- and business-minded lawmakers -- get it. I just spent a few days in Des Moines, Iowa, with some great members and friends of Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2), discussing the EPA's new Clean Power Plan to cut carbon pollution and the economic benefits it could bring to Midwestern states. While the EPA plan establishes guidelines to cut 30 percent of the nation's carbon pollution from power plants by 2030, it will be up to governors to implement strong programs to meet the standards in ways that are best for their states. Joining us in Des Moines were farmers and former NFL stars, military veterans and mayors, evangelicals and executive coaches. We met with the staffs of Gov. Branstad and Sen. Grassley, two Republicans who, in the past, have been supportive of clean energy and will be key to a strong state-implementation plan there. We also met with the mayors of Des Moines and Fairfield, two cities on the ...
