New Report: Path to the Paris Climate Conference

The United States is responsible for more climate-changing pollution in the atmosphere than any other country. As the fight to avoid the worst effects of global warming intensifies, Path to the Paris Climate Conference shows that American pollution-cutting efforts are setting an example for the world. Deeper cuts are needed at home and abroad, but by fully implementing policies already enacted at the state and federal levels – including the Clean Power Plan, the first national policy to limit climate pollution from power plants – the U.S. can prevent as much as 1.1 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide pollution annually by 2025. (Photo credit: Numismarty/
