Carbon Dioxide Emission
Write a research paper, approximately 1500 – 2000 words in length, in the form of a memo that
evaluates multiple alternative solutions to either end the problem or keep it under control. The
memo should take care to address each of the following areas: (i) Problem — a brief summary
of the problem and its interaction with human societies; (ii) Options — a description of multiple
potential human-driven solutions to the problem, including BOTH market-based and regulation-based alternatives; (iii) Advice — a compelling, well-justified case for a particular recommendation or set of recommendations; and (iv) Likelihood of Success — a reasonable critical assessment of the likelihood that the recommended solution(s) will be enacted AND
succeed. The paper should be double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman or Calibrifont, with 1-inch margins.
