From the environmental policy maker's point of view, the increase in energy prices in the 1970s and early 1980s had the positive effect of reducing pollution emissions by encouraging energy conservation. In particular, increases in energy efficiency in industrial and residential furnaces reduced emissions of sulphur and nitrogen oxides (SOx and NOx). Thus, environmental regulators were able to identify improvements in environmental quality, or mitigation of environmental degradation, achieved… CONTINUE READING
