A NATIONAL RPS SENDS A SIGNAL TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY TO DEVELOP
RENEWALS
Los Angeles Times 2008

[“A year to remember?; Though the lamest of ducks, President Bush could still change the world in the next 365
days”, January 20, 2008, lexis, Zhang]
Renewable energy. As greenhouse gases reach the tipping point, this nation faces a stark choice: lead or suffer
horrendous climactic consequences. With the Bush administration as obstructionist in chief, the Bali climate
change conference in December accomplished little. But this is one time when the U.S. should act unilaterally and
inspire other nations to follow. Last year, Congress failed to include provisions in its energy law that would have
established a federal standard for how much of the nation's electricity must come from renewable sources.
Congressional leaders should reintroduce that renewable portfolio standard legislation and pass it by July. That
would give Bush time to sign the bill before the Beijing Olympics and challenge China (and the rest of the world)
to make a similar commitment.
