How to get to a zero-carbon economy

| Sourced From Washingtonpost |

Steven Pearlstein’s column on climate policy and energy innovation [“Can regulation beget innovation?,” Economy and Business, July 16] was half-right.

New ideas and methods to replace carbon footprint units

| Sourced From Helium |

What is a carbon footprint? What does it relate to? Who can say how much 30 tonnes of CO2 feels like or looks like much less describe your own carbon footprint in simple terms, except to be vaguely high or low. Most people cannot relate to the carbon footprint or measure it without an online calculator. And experts who try to define and relate the carbon footprint to Climate Change make it unnecessarily complicated. Carbon Footprint units are not needed. We need a new scale, a simpler Green Scale to make things more accessible to people so they can better understand how much CO2 is

Carbon Caps Choke in Senate

| Sourced From Quicktake.morningstar |

With U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid’s (D., Nev.) announcement Thursday that he would not include carbon caps in a watered-down piece of energy legislation, we believe the prospect for a new climate change law is dead. A federal renewable portfolio standard, or RPS, also appears dead. With Republicans forecast to win House and Senate seats in the November elections, Democrats are likely to no longer have the votes to pass climate change and renewables legislation even if party moderates come back into the fold.
