Climate Change

CRA's Montgomery, Greenpeaces's Davies debate strategic approaches to CO2

How can the U.S. most effectively cut carbon emissions? The issue is highly controversial, and is at the center of the current stalemate over revising the Clean Air Act. Should America cap carbon emissions, as Europe is doing? Or should the US focus on new programs and incentives to develop technologies that reduce or prevent C02 emissions -- the primary greenhouse gas that many scientists say is warming the earth's atmosphere. In this edition of OnPoint, two analysts debate their very different views of the costs -- and benefits -- of these approaches to greenhouse gas reductions. Join OnPoint as David Montgomery of Charles River Associates and Kert Davies of Greenpeace USA go head-to-head on this contentious issue.
