Obama’s final Clean Power Plan launched this week like a consumer product. It was great to see Mother Nature and her amazing product, our environment, get the respect she deserves.  The White House had their ducks-in-a-row: a live announcement, clever social media and marketing support, and a well-scripted list of health, economic and environmental benefits. The Clean Power Plan (CPP) is significant, though it’s one effort on a long list of Obama greenhouse gas emission reductions. With political will, new technologies, and a worldwide shift to sustainable energy, we may possibly keep global warming to 2℃, and not cook ourselves to death.
