Summary

Upon ratification, the Kyoto climate treaty would require substantial reductions in U.S. carbon emissions by 2008-2012. This paper provides a technology and policy road map for achieving such reductions at low net cost to the nation. It is based on the results of a recent study by five national laboratories.
