Perspective: Regional Greenhouse Gas Cap-and-Trade Programs May be the Solution

Green Car Congress

Donovan, CEO of Renergie, Inc. Cap-and-trade was first tried on a significant scale twenty years ago under the first Bush administration as a way to address the problem of airborne sulfur dioxide pollution–widely known as acid rain–from coal-burning power plants in the eastern United States. These reductions in power plant emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO 2 ) and nitrogen oxides (NO x ) were achieved at a significantly lower cost than originally assumed.
