This chapter examines the regulation of greenhouse gases (GHG) upstream versus downstream. Upstream regulation focuses on the producers of fossil fuels (coals, natural gas, refined petroleum products) while downstream regulation involves the users of fossil fuels (drivers and power plants). The chapter also presents a theoretical model that explains why GHG emission regulation lowers abatement costs.

Keywords:   greenhouse gases, GHG, upstream regulation, downstream regulation, fossil fuels, abatement costs
