The EASY Plan & Policy

The goal is to reduce current annual US carbon emissions by 75% by the year 2030. The 4 components of the EASY plan, in a nutshell, are:

E -- energy efficiency in appliances, buildings, and industry
A -- automotive efficiency in design and fuel consumption for all types of transport
S -- solar and wind energy based electricity
Y -- you are part of the answer, through your individual actions, and most importantly, through your VOTE, because who you elect has a great influence on the other components.

The EASY Policy is based on one main concept:

Have government treat the solar and wind tech industries as if they are oil and coal: shift subsidies, windfall profit tax breaks, and other market incentives from oil and coal to clean renewable energy industries. Then let the market pick the winners.
