Titel

How to reduce the global CO2 emissions

Abstract

It is much cheaper and technically easier to reduce CO2 emissions caused by industry than by individuals. The way to achieve this is to put a price on the emissions. The main obstacle is not resistance from voters, but that if a country does it alone, its heavy industry (and the emissions) would move abroad. Thus, the only way forward is an international agreement, preferrably an agreement on a minimum level of domestic carbon taxes. China and India must be a part of such an agreement, and it would not hurt them significantly.
