  • The U.S. should follow Europe's lead on the environment

    The US. should follow Europe's lead on the environment. The EU just met its 2020 carbon cutting goal six years early. In the United States, there is a constant battle between companies and environmentalists. Often, commerce wins out since they tend to more better funded. There are also those that deny global warming even exists.

  • Yes, I think the United States should follow Europe's lead and significantly reduce its carbon footprint.

    Yes, I think the United States should follow Europe's lead and significantly reduce its carbon footprint because the United States is the world's leader and needs to be the trend-setter and not follower. Climate change is a major problem in the world today and the United States needs to take sound measures to effectively combat this change.

  • Yes, I believe the United States should follow Europe's lead and pledge to cut down its carbon footprint.

    Yes, I believe the United States should follow Europe's lead and pledge to cut down its carbon footprint because climate change is a major issue and the United States as the world's leader needs to do more to combat this stark issue. The United States needs to cut its carbon footprint and pledge to use more renewable and sustainable energy.

  • No, the United States should not follow Europe's lead.

    The European Union was able to reach its 2020 carbon cutting goal six years early. Many believe that the United States should follow suit. While the United States needs to reduce its carbon emissions, it must be done in a way that does not hurt the economy. The coal industry in the United States has been decimated by regulations over the past few years; leaving many miners out of work. Strict environment regulations can hurt the economy and cause job losses. A better method would be to ease into new regulations over several years to lessen the economic impacts. In short, the United States is very different from the European Union and should not follow Europe's lead on this issue.
