Title: Degrees of change: Steps towards an Ontario global warming strategy
Author: Ontario Global Warming Coalition
Abstract: This report discusses: 1. A survey of the most promising policy measures and technologies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions; estimates of their potential to reduce provincial carbon emissions: and discussion of the primary market and institutional barriers to their achievement, as well as proposal of reforms needed to overcome such barriers, especially in Ontario's regulation of utilities; 2. An assessment of the implications of the measures with respect to their cost effectiveness, the institutional changes necessary to successfully implement the measures, and their potential impact on the province's technology base and employment; and, 3. A case study that identifies opportunities for commercializing new natural gas cogeneration technologies in Ontario that could be used to reduce carbon emissions and suggests new policies to help the province capitalize on its global warming strategy by encouraging the growth of new businesses and jobs connected with such technologies.
