By facilitating the transportation of dirty tar sands fuels, Keystone would add 27.4 million metric tons of global warming pollution to our atmosphere per year. President Trump's executive order advancing the Keystone XL pipeline is definitely a step in the wrong direction. READ MORE.
The report finds that if the nation were to set a course for obtaining 30 percent of its electricity from wind power by 2030, America could avert nearly 712 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year by 2025 and 1 billion metric tons per year by 2030. Reducing pollution by this amount would achieve the entire target of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan, and then some.
American wind power already produced enough energy in 2013 to power 15 million homes. Continued, rapid development of wind energy would allow the renewable resource to supply 30 percent of the nation’s electricity by 2030, providing more than enough carbon reductions to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan.
California, along with 13 other states, praised the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan, a proposed rule to clean up global warming pollution from power plants. Power plants are the largest source of the carbon pollution fueling global warming, accounting for about 40 percent of total emissions.
Today, University of California Riverside students, faculty and members of the greater Inland Empire community participated in the Riverside Electric Vehicle Day, test driving electric cars and electric bikes available on the market today and learning about how electric vehicles can reduce air pollution, combat global warming, improve health and save working families money.
