Upping the Action: Regional Climate Change Abatement

Description

Dozens of policies to cut carbon pollution are in force, in jurisdictions covering more than 40% of the global economy. it is now possible to see clearly how well these policies work. Some deliver deep, rapid, and sustained reductions while boosting economic growth. Some barely dent emissions or falter after a promising early start. The differences matter. To achieve the deep reductions that are necessary to protect marine resources, pollution reduction must be aggressive. We have evaluated performance of carbon policies around the world and identified common features of the strongest measures. As Washington voters consider how to confront carbon pollution, the future of healthy oceans and fisheries depend on choosing well.
