US to slash automotive emissions this decade

Recent news and analysis out of Washington, states that The US needs to set a target of slashing its greenhouse gas emissions between 57% and 63% below 2005 levels by 2030 if we hope to achieve the Biden administration's longer-term goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.  
 
The Climate Action Tracker (CAT) analyzed President Joe Biden's plans to decarbonize the electricity sector, commercial buildings, and new vehicle fleet and found that in order for the United States to do its part to reach the goal of the Paris Agreement in limiting the rise of global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius — it needs to cut at least 57% of its emissions by the end of the decade.
 
European Union officials and environmental groups are calling on Washington to reduce emissions at least 50% this decade below 2005 levels. This is no small order, but by most accounts,  President Biden's climate team is working with all US government agencies and holding meetings with utilities and car companies as it crafts its new goal.
 
The Climate Action Tracker report states that the Biden administration's plan to decarbonize the U.S. power sector by 2035 is consistent with a Paris Agreement pathway, but that it needs to strengthen plans to slash emissions in buildings and vehicles to reach overall goals.
