"Many compared Bush's vow to cut greenhouse-gas emissions by 18 percent through 2012 with California's target of reducing emissions 25 percent by 2020"
Targets are meaningless by themselves if they are never met.
25 percent is just a number that sounds good, nothing says it will ever happen.
After people learn that they cant own a car anymore because they are forced to buy a new one that they cant afford or to keep their thermostats at 65 degrees in winter and 80 in summer 'to save energy', rejection of such measures will make hash of that 'target'.
How about requiring EVERY public employee to ONLY use mass transit every work day ??? Not likely to happen, is it ??
