ABSTRACT
The article reports on the capability of the U.S. to reduce projected 2030 emissions of greenhouse gases by between one-third to one-half. This could be done at manageable costs to the economy and without requiring changes in consumer lifestyles. The report "Reducing US Greenhouse Gas Emissions: How Much at What Cost?" was based on an analysis of 250 opportunities for reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases which are thought to be contributing to global warming.
