GLRPPR Sector Resource: Shrinking the Carbon Footprint of Metropolitan America
Shrinking the Carbon Footprint of Metropolitan America
America's carbon footprint is expanding. With a growing population and an expanding economy, America's settlement area is widening, and as it does, Americans are driving more, building more, consuming more energy, and emitting more carbon. Rising energy prices, growing dependence on imported fuels, and accelerating global climate change make the nation's growth patterns unsustainable. Metropolitan America is poised to play a leadership role in addressing these energy and environmental challenges. However, federal policy actions are needed to achieve the full potential of metropolitan energy and climate solutions.
