GLRPPR Sector Resource: Implementing Cost-effective Policies in the United States to Mitigate Climate Change

Title:
Implementing Cost-effective Policies in the United States to Mitigate Climate Change

Abstract:
The consensus view of scientists is that the build-up of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere is causing global warming. To reduce the probability of severe climate change impacts and costs occurring, global GHG emissions need to be reduced substantially over coming decades. The United States agreed to a global political agreement to reduce GHG emissions that was acknowledged at Copenhagen (COP15) in December 2009 and negotiations are continuing to work towards binding emissions-reduction commitments by all countries.
