Pew Center report says climate change can be addressed through use of renewables

As states try to individually address the issue of greenhouse gas emissions, creating renewable portfolio standards (RPS) has become a popular way to jump-start their efforts. During today's Event Coverage, the Pew Center on Global Climate Change introduces the new report, "Race to the Top: The Expanding Role of U.S. Renewable Portfolio Standards," written by the University of Michigan's Barry Rabe. Rabe focuses his report on several case studies of states that have implemented RPSs. He addresses some challenges facing renewable portfolio standards and outlines the political and economic benefits of RPSs.
