Obama has vowed to cut US emissions 17% by 2020. He's not on track yet.President Obama's plan to address global warming can be boiled down to a pretty simple set of numbers. As part of the ongoing international climate talks, Obama has long promised that US greenhouse-gas emissions will be roughly 17 percent lower in 2020 than they were in 2005. The short answer is that it's going to be very difficult — though not impossible — for the US to meet its climate goals for 2020. The policies that the Obama administration has put forward so far, including the Environmental Protection Agency's big proposal to cut carbon emissions from power plants, aren't yet sufficient. Obama will also need additional measures, including curtailing methane leaks from oil and gas drilling operations.
