Climate Change

Former DOE official David Conover calls for market signal on CO2

From hydrogen fuel cells to carbon sequestration, Bush administration officials have long touted new technology as the best way to reduce future greenhouse gas emissions. During today's OnPoint, a former Energy Department official turns a critical eye towards the White House's approach thus far. David Conover, former director of the U.S. Climate Change Technology Program (CCTP) and current counsel to the National Commission on Energy Policy, discusses why he believes a market signal is needed to spur action on climate change, and whether President Bush would ever endorse that strategy. Conover also explains why he feels the administration has the right idea when it comes to international partnerships on global warming.
