Obama says energy efficiency will get US "quarter of the way there"

This week is Energy Efficiency Week. In this interview with National Journal, President Obama argues that whatever you think about climate change, energy efficiency still makes sense.

So my approach to Republicans would be to say, "Regardless of what you think about climate change, here are a bunch of things that are smart to do. It will save consumers money, it will save the country as much money going into foreign oil imports, so let’s concentrate on things that we just know are smart to do." If we do that, we can probably get a quarter of the way there in terms of where we need to be in terms of carbon emissions.
