I wonder how much (if any) has the U.S. earmarked for climate change mitigation?

    There are certainly climate change mitigation policies being put into place by US cities, many of them members of the Cities for Climate Protection campaign of the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. These policies propose ways of reducing member cities’ greenhouse gas emissions, for instance installing LEDs, which use less energy, in traffic lights in place of incandescent bulbs, or by enhancing building energy efficiency codes and ordinances. These policies can cut down on greenhouse gases by thousands of tonnes, and often save municipal governments money. However, it’s a drop in the bucket compared to what is necessary to fix climate change problems.

    There seems to be a lot of talk but not a lot of action into climate change mitigation. It looks like too many people are stuck in their old ways to make a change on a national level. There are a lot of local changes however, that are pointing towards a brighter future. Many cities are looking to cut down on emission and greenhouse gases, as well as  giving people alternatives to using fossil fuels.
