A Conceptual Plan for Zero US Carbon Emissions and Energy Independence by 2050

| Sourced From Theenergycollective |

There appears to be a growing consensus here that halting the increase of atmospheric CO2 concentration would require reducing global annual CO2 emissions to zero. There also appears to be a growing consensus that this emissions reduction should occur by 2050. There is no global plan to achieve this result. There is also no US plan to achieve this result in the US. However, this conceptual plan may be of use in scoping the challenge.
