The article focuses on the report "Reducing U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions: How Much at What Cost?," which assesses the reduction of greenhouse gas emission. According to the report published jointly by McKinsey & Co. and The Conference Board, the U.S. could cut projected 2030 emissions of greenhouse gases by between one-third to one-half at manageable costs to the economy without requiring big changes in consumer lifestyle. The report is based on detailed analysis of 250 opportunities for reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases thought to contribute to global warming.
