Cutting policies, and carbon emissions, in the newest blue states
However, states shouldn’t abandon all of its clean technology and emissions cuttings schemes, according to climate lawyer Fergus Green, noting the many co-benefits of these programs. “It may not necessary be the most efficient way of reducing emissions, but it has social implications, it raises community awareness and it makes the green economy real to people through community based projects,” Green told Crikey.
“Some of them probably don’t make much economic and environmental sense, but that goes back more to the unfortunate design of the national scheme. It only really makes sense to [rely on] a national scheme alone if the national scheme is really good and the cap is really strong and it’s going to make a real difference to cutting carbon emissions and economic structural change.”
