It has been difficult for the US federal government to pass sweeping legislation that will spur renewable energy development, but California's new cap and trade program shows that states can lead.

New Hampshire, USA – Again and again renewable energy advocates have rued the U.S. federal government's failure to come up with real clean energy goals for the nation to stand behind. No national program to require a certain amount of renewable electricity be part of the country's energy mix by a certain date. No national program to limit carbon emissions.
