This chapter presents a summary of both the methods used and the results generated in this book's analyses of the costs and benefits of two national emission control policy options set in the recent past, the years 2006–2010. It defines the two past policy scenarios and the base case evaluated in Chapters 4–9. The chapter provides an integrated overview of the interdisciplinary research framework developed to analyze the costs and benefits of the two policy options, and then describes the research components of the integrated analysis in sequence: economy and energy use, atmospheric emissions, air quality, and avoided health and crop damages of air pollution. The results for each policy case are reported within each of these study components. It compares the costs and benefits of the two policies, and provides a summary of key implications and conclusions of the 2006–2010 policy cases.

Keywords:   emission control, policy options, research framework, costs and benefits, economy, energy use, policy cases
