Further to my earlier post, here’s a national energy plan that I strongly endorse, from the Center for American Progress. The ideas actually come from Rocky Mountain Institute’s Winning the Oil Endgame, but CAP has boiled them down to a few salient points. The short-term plan starts with:
1. A scrap-and-replace program for low-income households’ clunkers.
2. Vehicle feebates.
3. Better tires.
4. Car sharing.
