ABSTRACT
The article examines climate change mitigation proposals made by Ma Ying-jeou, President of Taiwan. The government of that country has put forward two concepts for international cooperation on greenhouse gas mitigation One is a program to assist developing countries in reducing their carbon emissions in which Taiwanese and other foreign corporations operating in those countries will acquire carbon credits from reduced emission to offset emissions in Taiwan. The second project would be an international effort for more energy-efficient generation of electric power, with a focus on the location of electric power plants and on developing biomass energy.
