  1. The Case For Early Action • Reduce Energy Use • Increase Efficiency • Improve the Bottom Line • Increase Competitiveness • Save Money

  2. The Case Against Early Action • It costs money to save money • You may be penalized later for reducing emissions early • Constitutes an admission that global climate change is a human-caused problem that needs to be addressed

  3. Wisconsin Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Cost Scenario Emission Reductions

  4. Wisconsin Can Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions • 8 million tons per year by 2010 • Energy savings of 9 million mWh • Create 8,500 jobs • Increase gross state product by $41 million • Increase disposable income by $490 million • Reduce Emissions of Other Air Pollutants

  5. The Case Against Early Action • It costs money to save money • You may be penalized later for reducing emissions early • Constitutes an admission that global climate change is a human-caused problem that needs to be addressed

  6. A National Emission Reduction Registry Must: • Include all greenhouse gases • Be equitable to all sources in all states • Accurately quantify, verify, and register emission reductions • Not give credit where credit is not due
