> *ASES Releases Landmark Report - */Tackling Climate Change in the 
> U.S.: Potential Carbon Emissions Reductions from Energy Efficiency and 
> Renewable Energy by 2030/
>
> The result of more than a year of study, the report illustrates how 
> energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies can provide the 
> emissions reductions required to address global warming.
>
>
> To develop the report, ASES recruited a volunteer team of top energy 
> experts. These experts produced a series of nine papers that examined 
> how energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies can reduce 
> U.S. carbon dioxide emissions~the main cause of global warming.
>
>
> ASES collected the nine papers together and added an overview of the 
> studies to create the report. It covers energy efficiency in 
> buildings, transportation, and industry, as well as six renewable 
> energy technologies: concentrating solar power, photovoltaics, wind 
> power, biomass, biofuels, and geothermal power. The results indicate 
> that these technologies can displace approximately 1.2 billion tons of 
> carbon emissions annually by the year 2030~the magnitude of reduction 
> that scientists believe is necessary to prevent the most dangerous 
> consequences of climate change.
>
> The report, edited by Chuck Kutscher, illustrates how energy 
> efficiency measures could keep U.S. carbon emissions roughly constant 
> over the next 23 years as the economy grows, and how renewable energy 
> technologies could make deep cuts below today‚s emissions. Wind energy 
> provides about 35% of the renewable energy contribution, while the 
> rest is divided about evenly among the other technologies. „Energy 
> efficiency and renewable energy technologies can begin to be deployed 
> on a large scale today to help save us from the worst consequences of 
> global warming,‰ said Kutscher. „With continued R&D to lower costs and 
> a reasonable level of policy support, they have the potential to meet 
> most, if not all, of the carbon reductions that will be required in 
> the future."

> the various emissions reductions and deployment locations are also 
> available at that site.

> You can help by letting your friends, colleagues, co-workers, state 
> and local government officials and representatives, and your local 
> newspaper know about the report. A press release that you can forward
