North Andover, MA

This session will focus on how, and how well, the U. S. is acting, and could act in the future, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. After reviewing sources of emissions and the means of reducing them, Bill will assess currently active government measures and whether the U. S. is likely to meet its 2025 Paris Agreement target of a 26-28% reduction of emissions below their 2005 level. The remainder of the session will address policy actions to achieve the low-emissions energy economy necessary to limit global warming over the longer-term future: economy-wide market-based systems (carbon taxes and economy-wide cap and trade systems) in conjunction with complementary institutional changes and government action. Sign up required.
