This chapter demonstrates that the common views held about Mexico, Canada, and the United States in relation to climate change policies are often wrong. It is popularly held that Mexico is greatly indifferent in the issue of climate change; that Canada has joined the group of European countries to meet the challenge of mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; and that the United States refused to enact any meaningful climate change mitigation laws and policies. Despite the modest GHG reduction efforts made by North America, there are still a growing number of ambitious and innovative climate change policy initiatives being prepared in all of the states, provinces, and municipalities, and by universities and private firms.

Keywords:   greenhouse gas emissions, climate change, United States, Mexico, Canada
