Analysis of Carbon Reduction in New York State, 105 pp., June 1991. New York State Energy Off., Div. Planning, Two Rockefeller Pl., Albany NY 12223; no charge.

Prepared in conjunction with the Departments of Environmental Conservation and Public Service as part of the State Energy Plan, which called for New York to examine actions necessary to achieve a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions by the year 2008. Without action, emissions would rise by 38% over the period. Emissions can be stabilized without significantly increasing energy costs, through cost-effective energy efficiency measures and other low-cost actions. These include automobile mileage standards, improving efficiency of building furnaces and boilers, reforestation, and wind and solar electricity generation. A federal carbon tax of $5 a ton would mitigate emissions significantly only if revenues were earmarked for financing carbon reduction measures; it would raise the price of gasoline and electricity about 1%. There are chapters or appendices on externality values for carbon emissions, carbon sequestration through reforestation, and carbon tax evaluation.
