Column: Emissions Cap is Key in Addressing Climate Issue

Date: 10 Jul 2007 | posted in: Energy, Energy Self Reliant States, Press Release | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

This column by David Morris and Peter Barnes argues for a three pronged strategy on climate protection. First, a comprehensive emission cap. Second, a carbon auction for suppliers of carbon fuels. And lastly, a universal and equal distribution of revenues from that sale. Three keys to an effective and equitable strategy to reduce global warming.
