Résumé

This report presents a detailed outline of the actions the US is taking to address climate change at the federal level. It highlights examples of state and local actions, and outlines US efforts to assist other countries' efforts to address climate change. According to this report, from 2005 through 2020, total US greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are projected to rise by 4% under a "with measures" scenario, from 7109 to 7416 Tg CO2eq. According to the report, with additional mitigation measures, such as those that would be implemented under the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, the US would have a GHG reduction goal of 17% by 2020, though US GDP is projected to grow by 40% over that period. Over the same period 2005-2020, emissions of HFCs are estimated to increase by 140% from 116 Tg CO2eq (1.6% of all GHGs) to 279 Tg CO2eq (3.8%). This projection does not take into account reductions which could result from a possible adoption of the amendment to the Montreal Protocol proposed by the US, Canada and Mexico.
