This chapter examines a number of carbon policy options for China, applying the integrated research framework introduced in the last chapter and described in the rest of the book. The research tools were first developed by evaluating emission control policies set in the recent past; in this chapter, they are used to analyze policy alternatives set in the future, to 2020. The focus is narrowed to policies designed to limit China's carbon emissions, but making full use of the breadth of the book's integrated framework. This allows the chapter to assess the effects of future policies not only on carbon emissions, but also on China's economy, energy use, air pollution emissions, domestic air quality, and the damages to public health and agricultural productivity that result.

Keywords:   carbon policy options, China, research tools, policy alternatives, future policies, carbon emissions, energy use
