Beth Lowery, GM's
Vice President for Energy and Environmental Policy has announced the General Motors
has joined the United States Climate Action Partnership
, becoming the first car-maker to join. USCAP is a collection of businesses and environmental groups that are lobbying the federal government to pass new rules requiring reductions in greenhouse gases. The group is wants to promote across the board reductions in emissions that tackle the problem in all industries. Among the other members of the group are the Natural Resources Defence Council, the Nature Conservancy, DuPont and General Electric.
Hopefully this move will mean the end of auto executives standing up in front of congress and complaining about increasing fuel economy
standards and more constructive work to actually make changes. You can read Lowery's latest post on the GM FYI blog to find out more.
