Greenhouse gas 5. markets Buy or sell credits that represent reduction or offset of greenhouse gases.

Electric & heating 6. efficiency Use electric and heating efficiency strategies to reduce greenhouse gases and save money.

7. Vehicle efficiency Implement efficiency improvements in engines, transmissions, aero- dynamics, and tire drag in light-duty vehicles.

8. Wind & solar power A short-term solution - wind and solar produce virtually no greenhouse gases as a byproduct of power production.

Low or no-carbon 9. energy systems Develop hydrogen and electric as energy sources.

10. Cleaner diesel Retrofit with pollution controls… Refuel with cleaner fuels… Replace older vehicles… Reduce idling.
