Report: 'Blue and Red States Going Green on Energy Policy'

USA Today reports that "Politically 'red' and 'blue' states are increasingly turning green as they push energy efficiency and renewable power to save money and protect the planet, says a report today with prominent bi-partisan support."  

"In the last two years alone, GOP-dominant red states have adopted policies that could serve as models for others seeking to meet proposed federal targets for reducing heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions, according to the 'State Clean Energy Cookbook ' by Stanford University and the Hoover Institution."  

"'There's no blue or red tinge to it. It's across the board,' says George P. Shultz, co-chair of Hoover's Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy and U.S. secretary of State, Treasury and Labor under two GOP presidents. He says the new report shows 'what works and what doesn't.'"
