Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Our greatest challenge in confronting climate change will be the transition away from fossil fuel combustion as our primary source of electricity. The market-based policy of cap and trade is a preferable solution to this problem that forces electric generators to compete for the right to emit CO2 while minimizing damage to the economy. This policy is studied from the perspective of a state legislator deciding whether to adopt it, and evaluated in the context of a proposed federal policy.
