It would be prudent to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions to limit climate change
-The United States is a major emitter of GHG
-Participation of the United States and other large emitters is pivotal to reaching an international agreement to reduce GHG emissions
-The most cost-effective way to reduce GHG emissions is to price them and to support the development and diffusion of emission-reducing technologies
-Government policies implemented thus far to reduce GHG emission have been neither ambitious nor cost effective
-The current Administrationís preferred climate-change policy would yield large cost-effective reductions in emissions if implemented
