STATE – By following recommendations in a National Blueprint for a Clean Energy Economy, the United States can reduce heat-trapping emissions to 56 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.
The organization recommends reducing the amount of energy we waste, get the energy we need from cleaner sources and store more heat-trapping carbon in forests and soil instead of the air. According to the report, consumers and businesses will save a net $255 billion on energy bills annually by 2030 if the recommendations are implemented.
