Jim will discuss EPA rules targeting coal power plants and other large GHG emitters; new cap and trade policies in California, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec; the RGGI cap-and-trade program in the Northeast; the status of the Western Climate Initiative and Midwest Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord; stakeholder pressure on corporations to reduce emissions; and more.
