The article offers information on policies in the "Climate 2030: A National Blueprint for A Clean Energy Economy," a report from Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). The policies for renewable energy and energy efficiency would produce a 56% decline in the heat-trapping emissions from the 2005 levels by 2030. These policies outlined in the UCS report aimed to attract investment in clean energy technologies by 2030. The report says that the savings on energy bills resulting from reductions in electricity and fuel will be shared by every region in the U.S.
