  • National Academy of Sciences report urges pricing CO2 | Conservation New Hampshire
    concludes NAS News Release 5 19 The Associated Press cites that the NAS calls for either a carbon tax on fossil fuels or a cap and trade system that would ultimately curb carbon emissions and greenhouse gases Carbon reduction goals set forth by the NAS report closely resemble those proposed by the recently introduced American Power Act 83 less emissions by the year 2050 The report also suggests that the longer we wait the more expensive it will be to address the problem An inclusive national policy framework is needed to ensure that all levels of government the private sector and millions of households and individuals are contributing to shared national goals Toward that end the U S should establish a greenhouse gas emissions budget that sets a limit on total domestic emissions over a set period of time and provides a clear directly measurable goal However the report warns the longer the nation waits to begin reducing emissions the harder and more expensive it will likely be to reach any given emissions target NAS News Release 5 19 Highlighting the diversity of the NAS the call for immediate action was emphasized by a non traditional messenger We really need to get started right away It s not opinion it s what the science tells you said Robert Fri who chaired one of the three panels producing separate climate reports Fri was acting Environmental Protection Agency chief under President Richard Nixon and until recently on the board of American Electric Power Co a major producer of carbon dioxide The country needs both a prompt and a sustained commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions he said Wednesday OK Congress You asked for this report NAS answered in a frank non political manner Will you act this year on this or any
