Cutting Global Warming

The consumer is King -- and Queen. The consumer is the person who buys products and services for personal or family use -- such as food, clothes, house furnishings and appliances. The consumer is the person who also chooses vacations, medical care and other personal and family related services. This list of states is recommended for consumers who want to buy products and services from states that are cutting global warming with enforceable greenhouse gas emission reduction targets(*). The name of a state is on labels, websites, and envelopes.

Consumers have powerful control over a state's standard of living and standard of government. Consumer Spending is 2/3's of the economy. The remaining 1/3 is government and business spending. A state's standard of living and standard of government depends mostly on consumers. Paychecks are possible mainly because you buy products and services for personal use and pay taxes. Therefore, your choices of products and services are important because your choices can play an important role in a state's decision to cut global warming. State legislators' salaries depend on their state's income tax and sales tax.
