The Cape Wind Energy Project is an excellent example of what can be done now to make the transition to renewable energy production without further significant environmental costs. It will stand as a model of progress by the U.S. in meeting its global obligations to reduce greenhouse gases and a model of leadership and compromise by the residents of Cape Cod to reduce air pollution.

Reuters is reporting on two significant new reports on climate change -- in 'Impact of climate change hitting home, U.S. report finds', Reuters reports how climate change is already significantly impacting every region of the United States according to a draft 1,146 page report of the U.S. National Climate Assessment, commissioned by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Reuters' article 'Emissions limits could cut climate damage by two-thirds - study' reports on a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change that is the first comprehensive assessment of the benefits of cutting greenhouse gas emissions, finding up to two thirds of the damange this century from climate change can be prevented if major steps are taken now to reduce emissions.
