Special issue on climate policy and multi-greenhouse gas mitigation, providing a comprehensive report on a comparative set of analyses of the economic and energy sector impacts of multigase mitgation of anthropogenic greenhouse gases. Data development of NCGG and sinks emissions and mitigation costs and subsequent transfer of the modeling teams were major elements of the study. The volume consists of (1) papers prepared by NCGG data analysis teams on what data they developed and how they developed it; (2) papers by two forestry modeling teams that analyzed the potential for forest sinks to absorb CO2 from the atmohsphere and the associated mitigation (or enhanced sequestration) costs; and (3) papers by 19 global energy-economic teams on what they did and what they concluded from the model runs that were undertaken.
