1. Introduction Debate over how, when, and even whether, human-made greenhouse gas emissions should be controlled has grown in its intensity even faster than 3 May 17, 2007 23:23 WSPC/SPI-B424 From Earthquakes to Global Warming 4 ch01 D. S. Reay the levels of greenhouse gas in our atmosphere. Many argue that the costs involved in reducing emissions outweigh the potential economic damage of human-induced climate change. Exaggerated claims and forecasts of climate meltdown in the media have naturally given rise to both fervent belief in, and hardened scepticism of, measures to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Mr Black Mr Meyer Greenhouse Gas (tonnes) £ sterling) Cost (£ 1251 370 131 000 48 845 From a political perspective, the promotion and subsequent incorporation of such ‘individual’ cuts into national GHG budgets would seem extremely attractive. Certainly, recent years have seen increasing government interest in this area. The UK government is promoting domestic energy efficiency via better information, financial incentives and tighter regulations. Indeed, they predict that implementation of these strategies could cut UK carbon emissions by around 5 million tonnes by 2010 [DETR, (2000)].
