Notes "September 9, 2008." Title from title screen (viewed on Sept 24, 2008).
Contents Notes The World Resources Institute's analysis of emissions targets and cumulative emissions budgets attempts to objectively, fairly and accurately compare GHG reductions from explicit carbon caps and complementary policies contained in climate proposals submitted in the 110th Congress. Emissions from capped sectors are calculated based on the text of the respective legislation. For sectors that are not covered by the legislation, emissions are estimated to continue uncontrolled in line with projections published by EPA. This analysis uses a single set of carefully selected data and methods to provide a consistent comparison across all climate proposals in the 110th Congress. This analysis is not a projection of actual future emissions under the various proposals nor is it an analysis of economic impacts resulting from the enactment of these policies.
