Climate:

Author Stacy VanDeveer discusses North American climate policy

As the United States debates domestic cap-and-trade legislation, would a North American plan for emissions reduction be a more successful option? During today's OnPoint, Stacy VanDeveer, an associate professor in the department of political science at the University of New Hampshire and editor of the new book, "Changing Climates in North American Politics: Institutions, Policymaking, and Multilevel Governance," assesses North American policy responses to climate change. He discusses the potential for using NAFTA for carbon dioxide emissions trading and talks about interaction between the public and private sectors on climate.
