Decarbonization with Regards to Climate Change Migration Policies

In response to the question of how to effectively promote decarbonization by means of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions control and regarding climate change mitigation policies in the U.S. targeting coal burning power generation sites, this report, which is part of a larger research study at University of North Dakota, will discuss the challenges and how they have impacted the implementation of the policy. This report will look at the need for emissions control, technologies currently in use, theoretical and actual data supporting their effectiveness to lower carbon emissions, examine current mitigation guidelines with recent changes, and make broad recommendations for changes. We hypothesize that a combination of emission control systems will be required for effective use while its cost vs. plant value will detour actual conversion. Current policy changes while bold, will be held ineffective by litigation and still not be enough to obtain the 2050 goal of Net Zero.
