ABSTRACT
The article reports on the optimistic analysis conducted by the U.S. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the possibility of mitigating climate change. According to the IPCC experts, the range of options for getting the climate under control, as well as stemming the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, is growing all the time. It cites evidence that if carbon dioxide emissions are given a cost of US$50 per tonne, economic forces may drive global emissions in 2030 20% to 50% lower.
