  Cut Emissions, Boost Profits
  In his book, Cool Companies: How the Best Businesses boost Profits and Productivity by Cutting Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Joseph Romm praises Seattle City Light for promoting conservation and Seattle City Light business customers for proactively facing the global warming challenge. Mr. Romm is director of the nonprofit Center for Energy and Climate Solutions in Washington, D.C. and a former assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. "If every utility were like City Light, the whole country would meet Kyoto with a net profit," he says in reference to the 1997 Kyoto climate-change treaty goal of reducing global CO2 emissions below 1990 levels by the year 2012.

Jon Savelle, Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce Environmental Editor, interviews Mr. Romm about his latest book in the July 5 Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce.
