Congress Passes Energy Bill

Today, the US Congress has passed an energy bill that some are calling “historic.”  Here are key pieces:

  • 35 mpg fuel efficiency by 2020 (which still puts us behind many other nations)
  • push toward more biofuels beyond petroleum-based fuel (which makes up 97% of our fuel needs)
  • stronger standards for buildings and infrastructure.

One thing that makes this significant is that environmentalists,  business, & security interests came together to make this possible.  For more info, take a look at the BBC article, “US Congress approves energy bill.”
