The article reports that nine Northeastern and Middle-Atlantic states have initiated action to address the issue of greenhouse gas mitigation. The program initially will focus only on powerplant emissions. But the long-term plan of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the organization coordinating the effort, is to expand it to cover other sources. Unlike the case of sulfur, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, no equipment can reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
