Can (and will) the world craft a meaningful, inclusive, efficient, and equitable climate agreement?

Shreekant Gupta, professor of public policy at the National University of Singapore, discusses the implications of a global cap-and-trade system for curbing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and the allocation of GHG quotas for a global carbon market.

Gupta spoke on Feb. 23, 2009 as part of the Climate Change Forum, an initiative of Cornell faculty in the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, and humanities for deeply interdisciplinary mutual learning in pursuit of an effective and just response to the challenge of global warming. It is sponsored by the Cornell Center for a Sustainable Future, with support from the Colleges of Engineering and Agriculture & Life Sciences, and the Institute for Computational Sustainability.
