RFF Policy Leadership Forum: John Rowe
The Exelon CEO discussed recent trends affecting the relative cost-effectiveness of different strategies for reducing emissions from the power sector.
Can the Clean Air Act Handle Offsets?
The Environmental Protection Agency is gearing up to regulate greenhouse gases, but a new analysis finds that emissions offsets may not find a good fit for current clean air rules.
Taking the Measure of Forest Carbon
Resources Magazine: A look at the Forest Carbon Index, an ambitious project integrating global datasets to illuminate the geography of the emissions offset market.
How Will EPA Regulate Greenhouse Gases?
Under the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency can regulate emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. An analysis by RFF researchers examines how the government will manage oversight of power plants and other stationary sources of emissions.
How EPA's Air Rules Analysis Stacks Up
New research by RFF Visiting Scholar Arthur G. Fraas suggests that the Environmental Protection Agency's uncertainty analysis still doesn't meet expectations.
Can a Price Collar Unleash the Power of Offsets?
Emissions offsets are expected to play a big role in cap and trade, but controlling costs will be crucial to make these markets work.
EPA v. Climate Change
Visiting Scholar Nathan Richardson argues that the Environmental Protection Agency’s case for regulating greenhouse gases may may be weaker than many think.
Burtraw Testifies on California Cap and Trade
RFF Senior Fellow Dallas Burtraw outlines potential pitfalls in implementation of California’s AB32 climate legislation.
Measuring the Costs of Air Pollution in China
Resources Magazine: China’s booming growth has also brought rapidly rising air pollution. A new study finds that reductions in pollution could save hundreds of thousands of lives.
Report: Natural Gas Could Bridge the Gap to a Low-Carbon Future
Abundant new natural gas supplies can help the United States achieve low-carbon goals, but only if coupled with effective climate policies, according to new findings by RFF researchers.
How Obama Can Conquer Copenhagen
At the UN negotiations in Copenhagen next month, President Obama can reclaim U.S. leadership on climate progress—even without new congressional legislation. Nigel Purvis and Andrew Stevenson provide a step-by-step outline for how the administration should proceed.
Will Global Warming Discount Rates Short-Change Our Grandkids?
Commentary: Oxford's Cameron Hepburn considers the role of ethics in calculating discount rates for global warming damages to future generations and how to reconcile differing views in the debate.
Testimony: Karen Palmer Testifies on Cap-and-Trade Policy
Weathervane: Appearing before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, RFF Senior Fellow Karen Palmer examines the effects of different approaches to compensating residential electricity consumers for the costs imposed by a climate policy.
Plugging Cap-and-Trade into California's Electricity Sector
Researchers Karen Palmer, Dallas Burtraw, and Anthony Paul address the options for regulating California’s electricity sector within the context of a statewide, and possibly regional, cap-and-trade program that also covers other sectors.
A Proposal for Chilling Copenhagen’s Hot Political Climate
Commentary: Jeffrey Frankel and Valentina Bosetti propose an international architecture for global climate policy that, unlike other successors to the Kyoto Protocol, takes into account a variety of likely political constraints.
Harnessing New Electric Technologies to Curb CO2 Emissions
Analysis released at an RFF briefing by the Electric Power Research Institute’s Prism and MERGE projects suggests that diverse electricity technologies could meet the dual challenges of satisfying demand growth and constraining CO2 emissions, while also limiting increases in electricity costs. Video and audio available.
Designing Policies to Speed Technology Transfer to China
Clearing the barriers to the transfer of climate mitigation technologies means tackling difficult issues like intellectual property and tax incentives for implementation.
Finding Climate Mitigation Technologies That Work
Designing clean-energy technology policies to "decarbonize" major economies will require both a strong pricing signal as well as removal of policy barriers that inhibit R&D. In an RFF Issue Brief, Carolyn Fischer explores the tradeoffs.
The Evolving SO2 Allowance Market: Title IV, CAIR, and Beyond
In a July 13 commentary, David Evans and Karen Palmer discuss the sulfur dioxide cap-and-trade system. While the program has been highly successful in generating substantial pollution-related health benefits at relatively low cost, the authors suggest ways to make the program still more efficient.
Time for a CO2 Tax?
In a new RFF Issue Brief, Ian Parry discusses the case for implementing a carbon tax as a quick way to establish a market price on greenhouse gases—and thus help stabilize further climate change.
