There are 6 comments on How the US Can Cut Carbon Emissions in Half by 2030, with or without Congress

  1. Very hopeful.. without giving up cars: although that would be ideal! Expanding the EV infrastructure ala Tesla will make a tremendous impact in reducing carbon footprint of our preferred transportation: Especially in the trucking industry. Incentivizing alternative energy and creating more jobs in those sectors is the way to go. It’s a relief to have an administration prioritizing this goal!

  2. I hope that Boston University will encourage faculty and staff to work remotely to reduce our carbon emissions when it can be done with out impacting our mission.

  3. The non American citizens pouring through our non secure border should be happy this “badministration” Is working so hard to reduce emissions in the country they are graciously going to be given to do with what THEY want. Lets hope we can continue to care for and provide for their every need as we magically transform our energy grid with that money the two assed democrats apparantly crap from their non talking rears. America has already been leading the way and this “leader” needs to condemn china instead of dancing around them being one of the biggest carbon emitting countries. This whole idea is just to pander to these new generations of people that sit around on social media thinking words and ideas is what make differences, and not them actually getting off their lazy non contributing asses. There is no way in hell the US can meet this ridiculous goal. Keep living in lala land. While people like truckers keep running their big ol trucks millions of miles to bring you food so you can sit and eat and talk about saving the planet. Its absurd. People have No idea how many electric trucks it would take just to keep up with our food needs.
