The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) just released a preliminary, technical report that shows how the United States can cut its greenhouse gas emissions to 80 percent of 1990 levels by 2050 – provided the political will is there. Such a drastic cut is necessary in order to achieve the internationally agreed target of no more than a 2°C (3.6°F) increase on global mean surface temperature compared to pre-industrial levels. The report also uses very conservative measurements to conclude that it would only take around one percent of GDP per annum to achieve this outcome.
