Are there any alternatives to the cap and trade system we are pushing for?

    Yes, there are plenty of alternative ideas. You could simply make a carbon dioxide emission tax based on the amount of greenhouse gas produced, which could be same for any company or higher for companies engaged in fossil fuel production and use. Government could introduce new and increase current subsidies for environmentally friendly businesses and energy producers and researchers. Another common tactic is requiring a certain portion of the energy or fuel to be produced from green sources. Similar goals can be made to promote green technologies such as fuel-efficient or alternative-fuel vehicles. A good combination of these, along with distributing information on available efficiencies and danger of global warming, could be more effective than cap and trade.
