State Blueprint to Reduce Greenhouse Gases

November, 2009

Dan Kammen talks on KCBS about the new Californian proposal that would cap most of the state's greenhouse gases from hundreds of power plants, refineries, and other big factories, allowing companies to buy and sell emission allowances among themselves. The plan would eventually cover about 85 percent of all emissions in the state. He says the idea is to balance costs with incentives so that industry comes up with creative ways for reducing all types of emissions.
