Greenhouse Gas Policy in Various Countries

A comparative study of greenhouse gas control policies in several large industrial nations was presented in another report (pdf) from the Congressional Research Service that has not been made readily available to the public.

“All of the countries examined have in place, or are developing, some enforceable policies that serve to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” the CRS found.  “Most are at some stage of making their programs more stringent.”  See “An Overview of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Control Policies in Various Countries,” November 30, 2009.

  1. Increased CO2 levels does not necessarily imply increased temperatures. Please make this distinction to be accurate. CO2 has positive and negative implications. Increased CO2 levels has other complications that need to be better studied. It is haphazard science to say you could derive much from just CO2.

    The world believes, as is evident at Copenhagen (?!.), that something should be done about climate change. We should take this opportunity to capitalize on our scientific strengths. Every serious energy study recognizes Nuclear as one of the primary solutions. For every $100 k/y in aid we should sign military lease agreements to protect fuel/investments in Nuclear. This needs to be done in the developing world and offers an opportunity to decentralize the projection of force for the future of military operations.

    The land should be characterized as long term land lease agreements and have trade zone characteristics. This proposal has long term economic/strategic implications. The window of opportunity is closing.
