European Commission agrees to 40% GHG cuts by 2030

The European Commission today launched its climate change blueprint for the coming decades that includes a plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent. José Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, called the plan "ambitious but feasible, the most cost-effective for the 2050 road map." The framework also maps out European renewable energy goals through 2030.
