Many of the potential solutions have benefits beyond greenhouse gas reduction, such as increased employment, stimulation of the high-tech manufacturing sector, and reduced urban air pollution.
A combination of public interest and government sponsored programs can make these solutions a reality.
|Industry: Industry can reduce emissions in flexible, cost-effective ways that reduce waste and enhance long-term profits.|
|Transportation: A reduction in automobile use, improved fuel efficiency standards, and better public transit would reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as urban air pollution.|
|Urban Planning: Learn about the benefits of sustainable urban design, and how you can stop sprawl in your community.|
|Buildings: Effective building retrofits increase energy efficiency, save consumers money on heating and electricity bills, and are available today.|
|Green Leaders: Some businesses and municipalities realize the sound economics of climate solutions and have embraced innovation.|
