Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) continued to support the right of states to enforce their own greenhouse gas reduction plans and support an \u201cefficient\u201d market-based reduction system. The lawmaker, who chair\u2019s the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, released parameters for climate change legislation February 3 in a white paper. In addition to backing a carbon market, she said profits from a market in reducing greenhouse gases keeps consumers \u201cwhole\u201d and produces investments in technology and efficiency. Other uses of market profits would be to assist states, munis, tribes, workers, and businesses in addressing and adapting to global warming impacts. Response was tepid from generators. We\u2019re \u201csomewhat disappointed\u201d that the plan didn\u2019t \u201cstress the need for development and deployment of new technologies,\u201d Scott Segal, Electric Reliability Coordinating Council director stated. He added that emphasizing state and local rights could create \u201can inefficient and expensive patchwork of competing regulatory regimes.\u201d Other points in the report include: -Setting short- and long-term emissions targets that are certain and enforceable, with periodic review of the climate science and adjustments to targets and policies as necessary to meet emissions reduction targets; and -Ensuring a level global playing field by providing incentives for emission reductions and effective deterrents so that countries contribute their fair share to the international effort to combat global warming.
