Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Environmental PolicySection 61 Group 13 5 SectorsAnalyzed 1. Residential sector 2. Commercial sector 5. Industrial sector 4. Transportation sector 3. Electric power sector Are global carbon dioxide emissions still rising? Yes, carbon dioxide emissions are still rising. SCOPE ~ Focus policy is on carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel consumption ~ Analysis is based on 2 states in the United States (New York & California) ~ Reduce air pollutants: Specifically on carbon dioxide emission TIMELINE ~ 5 years (2012-2016) : Installation of all ports, fracking further research, emission tax policy ~ 3 years (2017-2019): Grace period to prepare for emission tax, vehicles purchase & fracking building process ~ 7 years (2020-2026): Implementation of policies > complete implementation CURRENT TRENDS ~ In 2011, total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions were 6,702.3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide ~ Total U.S. emissions have increased by 8.4 percent from 1990 to 2011 ~ Since 1990, U.S. emissions have increased at an average annual rate of 0.4 percent IMPLEMENTATION PLANS Reduce fossil-fuels usage by vehicles Control emission in industrialization Restrict gas flaring activities SCOPE IMPLEMENTATION CHALLENGES ~ Electric car usage~ Install electric car charging ports at gas stations & high traffic areas ~ Emission tax for operations generating excessive C rate~ Implemented in industrial sector to increase revenue ~ Increase mining in cheap but economical shale gas~ Fracking Electric vehicles are expensive ESTIMATED FUTURE PERFORMANCE Fracking is a very controversial issue Emission taxes drive away businesses Educating people is time consuming * Plan: To decrease total emissions from each sector respectively by 5% per year
