Obama Rolls Out Energy Plan

[Concord Monitor] In Portsmouth yesterday, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama laid out a detailed energy plan, which includes a cap-and-trade system for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, a $150 billion investment in climate-friendly technology, and higher standards to improve energy efficiency and reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. “The question is not if a renewable energy economy will thrive in the future. It’s where. And if we want that place to be the United States of America, we can’t afford to wait any longer,” Obama said. “Global warming is not a someday problem. It is now.”
