GLRPPR Sector Resource: Why Counting Carbon is a Key to Climate Change

Title:
Why Counting Carbon is a Key to Climate Change

Abstract:
Behavioral economists will tell you that the simple act of placing an electricity consumption meter in plain view can substantially cut a home's energy use. The same goes for real-time miles-per-gallon meters in cars, which change the way we drive. These findings tell us something about behavior: When the price of costly activities isn't hidden from us, we're more likely to pursue those activities prudently.
