Reducing America’s Carbon Footprint?

Posted by italco on September 10, 2010

“The Pentagon says it will design energy-efficient weapons systems — and the Navy will build a carrier strike group of nuclear ships powered by biofuel.

The Army Corps of Engineers is putting in solar panels on nine dams in California.

The greening of government will include agencies as diverse as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the National Archives and Records Administration. Their energy-saving ideas include installing solar panels, recycling, using less water, telework, reducing fleets of government cars and trucks or committing to use carbon-free, alternative fuel in those vehicles.

These are some of the strategies that 56 government agencies will use to reduce the federal carbon footprint in the next decade to reach President Obama’s goal of a 28 percent emissions reduction.

We are very proud of our government agencies stepping up to the challenge and leading the way for private buildings owners to follow. We must watch carefully and make certain that corruption is not a part of our energy improvements.

This is where American jobs will can be created in manufacturing, construction, repair, and maintenance. Let’s get to work!
