Product Description

By Steve Ferrey

Unlocking the Global Warming Toolbox is the first and only book to focus on the key options for designing and implementing equitable and goal-specific carbon regulation. This book is a regulatory toolkit holding the policy and legal implements necessary to shape the carbon future. It showcases the ongoing legal and regulatory issues that will be worked out both in the United States and in international programs for years, and highlights the lasting issues related to crafting successful carbon control.

Unlocking the Global Warming Toolbox is a must-have for those who would regulate carbon and those who would be subject to that regulation�policymakers, regulators, industry, nongovernmental organizations, and consumers.
