US Emissions Off the Mark

Roger Pielke Jr. has a great post and graph (above) comparing US actual emissions in comparison with the emission targets proposed by the Obama administration at Copenhagen. For a long time Pielke Jr. has been advocating for a change in approach to climate change precisely because of the results illustrated above: ideal targets can’t be met. The graph makes the point, its just not gonna happen; at least this way. The carbon count in terms of nuclear power plants drives home the idea of how difficult it is to cut carbon emissions based on this hopeful voluntaristic approach.
