Obama Pledges Emissions Cuts for Federal Government

President Obama announced this morning that the federal government would cut its emissions by 28 percent in 2020. It’s a small step compared to the nationwide carbon cap he hopes to institute — and which conservatives will battle tooth and nail — but it lends some quick credence to his renewed commitment to cleaner energy, as laid out in his State of the Union Wednesday.

“As the largest energy consumer in the United States, we have a responsibility to American citizens to reduce our energy use and become more efficient,” Obama said. “Our goal is to lower costs, reduce pollution, and shift Federal energy expenses away from oil and towards local, clean energy.”

That ought to shut bin Laden up.
