CEOs & Treehuggers join forces

It is not everyday that CEOs and Treehuggers join forces. 10 US Companies and 4 environmental groups are jointly calling for immediate action to address climate change.

Alcoa, BP America, Caterpillar, DuPont, General Electric, Lehman Brothers, Duke Energy, FPL Group, PG&E, PNM Resources, Environmental Defense, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Pew Center on Global Climate Change and the World Resources Institute have formed what is being called U.S. Climate Action Partnership. They are recommending a mandatory reduction in CO2 emissions using a cap and trade mechanism. The aim is a 10-30% reduction in CO2 emission in the next 15 years.

Will 2007 finally be the tipping point ?

I think a lot of companies are finally starting to get it. Might be too late to change the ship around, but it could keep it afloat for a little while longer, at least.

Love the new look, btw.
