The California Air Resources Board released an alternatives analysis June 13 of its plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Issued in response to a court order, the document evaluates the impacts of a “no project” alternative, a cap and trade program, direct regulation of sources, a carbon fee or tax, and a combination of measures including cap and trade, and finds the same conclusion as the initial environmental analysis: that a cap and trade program is the best strategy for achieving the reductions required under the state’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (A.B. 32).
