ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on the disconnection between understanding a real and immediate problem and decisions made by individuals to address climate change mitigation. Topics discussed by the author include the personal efforts in terms of standard of living, the easier to adopt climate-related behaviors with little or no impact on greenhouse gas emissions, and assigning climate change with low importance.

    Cap-and-trade, a regulatory instrument widely used to constrain greenhouse gas and other pollution, has recently been criticized for producing only small amounts of intended emission reductions. This paper looks at the empirical record of cap-and-trade since the beginning in 1995, and shows that...
