An RFF Policy Briefing
New York City
January 17, 2008 

Resources for the Future Senior Fellows Raymond J. Kopp and William A. Pizer organized the U.S. Climate Policy Forum in May 2006 to analyze and make findings regarding policies to address global climate change. The Forum brought together researchers and business leaders from 23 companies that represent a broad spectrum of the U.S. economy.

The report, Assessing U.S. Climate Policy Options: A report summarizing work at RFF as part of the inter-industry U.S. Climate Policy Forum, represents the culmination of the Forum process. Written by independent RFF scholars and informed by a year-long dialogue with Forum participants, the report encompasses 15 issue briefs, detailing policy questions and concerns in key areas related to greenhouse gas emissions and legislative proposals to curb them.
