Reducing U.S. CO2 Emissions: The Value of Flexibility in Timing,
A.S. Manne, R.G. Richels, 22 pp., May 1992. Available from second author, Elec.
Power Res. Inst., POB 10412, Palo Alto CA 94303.
Uses the Global 2100 model to examine the economic impact of the E.C.
proposal for stabilizing emissions by the year 2000, then examines the effect of
delaying the timetable by 10 or 20 years. Focusing on the year 2000 may give
misleading indications regarding costs, as reductions will have to grow to
maintain stabilization after that time.
