The detailed paper provides the full background analysis for the companion action agenda, as well as a complete description of the methodology the four partner organizations used to develop it. With international concern growing over the potential impacts of climate change, the partners sought common ground among business and environmental interests to develop a rational policy of this vital issue. They evaluated a range of future scenarios for greenhouse gas emission and carbon sequestration; they considered the possible effects of new technologies, especially for renewable energy sources, conservation tillage, and alternative fuel vehicles; and they considered economic, managerial, and legal barriers to climate-friendly technical advances. Following a comprehensive survey of their own diverse efforts to protect the earth's climate, the four organizations describe the joint program of action they will focus on in the future.
