Our solutions and what we stand for

Posted by Joe Lucas at 12:00 pm, February 04, 2009

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), the chair of the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, has released a set of climate change principles. Click here to download the PDF.

At this time last year, we were putting together our own set of climate change principles, outlining ACCCE's support for a mandatory federal plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, provided we simultaneously work to protect energy security and keep energy costs affordable for consumers. Striking this balance will require hard work, but it can be done.

For more information, take a look at our 12 legislative climate change principles for federal carbon management legislation (PDF).

It's interesting to see what we have in common.

    I dont see any solutions…just a bunch of hype and spin. How about some specifics on how this will be done? Dont just say “carbon capture”…tell us how you plan to capture and store the CO2. Tell us of more efficient generators and coal fired furnaces that are being designed. Nothing here but a hot air balloon. Pretty on the outside but nothing inside.

  2. Al,

    Have you seen our clean coal technology map? Or the list of the 80-plus carbon capture projects in the U.S.? We also post the latest news in clean coal research and news (from external sources) on this news feed, and discuss them in more detail here on the blog—try browsing the site via categories (on the right-hand side of the page) to find posts on technology and carbon capture.

    If there’s something more you’d like to see on the site, let us know. We want to give people the information they’re looking for.
