US needs nearly two-thirds emissions cut by 2030 to achieve net zero by mid-century, new analysis finds

The United States needs to cut emissions by almost two-thirds in the next nine years to reach net zero by mid-century, according to new analysis from the Climate Action Tracker. “It would be a major boost to international climate cooperation. Having the US taking such strong action would reverberate across the world, and result in other countries also stepping up to adopt the kind of targets they need to make global net zero a reality,” said Bill Hare, CEO of Climate Analytics.
