Much of the technology and ingenuity required to seriously reduce the threat of global warming already exist. This includes solutions that are going to stimulate the American economy because they will be creating jobs, saving consumers and government money, and will be helpful to protect our national security. The key is sustainable or renewable energy.
By committing to and investing in renewable energy and, just as important, the energy efficiency of appliances we use and the cars we drive, we can take significant steps towards minimizing our dependency on fossil fuels. We know that our consumption of oil is contributing to the threat of global warming.
We should (and are capable of) use energy much more efficiently and benefit from much more renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, geothermal, and bio-energy. We must rapidly work towards a significant reduction of emissions of heat-trapping gasses, like carbon dioxide (CO2) methane, and nitrate oxide. We need well-educated executive managers who are ready to go all the way.
