Calvin Jones of Climate Change Action refers readers to a report: Tackling Climate Change in the U.S. According to the report, the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) has the answer to the question: What can we do about global warming? The answer: Deploy clean energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies now!
According to Jones the key findings of their report are:
1) Efficiency can stabilise energy consumption up to 2030.
2) Under these circumstances ever greater penertration of renewable energy can lead to significant decarbonisation and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
In qauntitative terms, emissions reductions from the energy system of 40% by 2030 are shown to be entirely feasible.
