The Case For Intensity Targets
For at least the next two decades greenhouse gases will continue to rise. In a new discussion paper, Fellow Billy Pizer suggests it is necessary to accomodate this rise while putting into place the policies that, tightened over time, are capable of slowing the rise, then stopping it and forcing a decline.
