Climate for Climate Change Actions in the U.S.: The New York Experience
In April 1993, the United States (U.S.) announced its commitment to reduce GHG emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2000. In October of that same year, President Clinton released his Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) which details the U.S. response to climate change. The CCAP depends largely on the voluntary reduction of GHG emissions by electric utilities and businesses in the U.S. The paper evaluates how the President’s voluntary initiatives for reduction of GHGs and other instruments of environmental control are being utilized in the U.S. for reducing the threat of the climate change.
