COAL POWER in a Warming World: A SENSIBLE

Requiring new coal plants to capture their global warming pollution will not drive reductions from the existing coal fleet. The federal government should therefore adopt a cap-and-trade policy that puts a cap on total emissions, creates an ongoing financial incentive to reduce emissions by establishing a price on each ton of CO 2 emitted, and ...
