Ah, but the Catch-22 of the morning: lower emissions mean less market motivation for long-term solutions like cap-and-trade programs. Kind of like how low gasoline prices may deflate our motivation for long-term energy solutions like mass transit (which we Americans used more last year than we have since pre-Interstate Highway days) and smaller cars.
Will we ever learn to think beyond today's price tag?
