Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

When the President outlined his Climate Action Plan on June 25, he stressed the importance of federal leadership on emissions reduction efforts. A little over five months later, he signed a presidential memorandum directing the federal government to obtain 20 percent of its electricity from renewable energy by 2020. The December 5 directive creates an action item for the Climate Action Plan and builds upon the 2009 Executive Order 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance.
