520    The protection of the earth's atmosphere requires 
       substantial efforts to reduce CO2 and other greenhouse gas
       emissions. In order to meet these targets, governments 
       have started to implement climate policies which include 
       informational measures such as demonstration programmes as
       well as economic instruments such as energy or emission 
       taxes, emission trading schemes, efficiency standards and 
       labelling systems for appliances, and subsidies for low- 
       or no-carbon technologies such as renewable energy 
       sources. This book presents a highly policy-relevant 
       overview of the likely macroeconomic effects of climate 
       change policy. It portrays the current debate and analyses
       the modelling results of existing studies. The authors 
       also present their own empirical results which contribute 
       to closing the gap with regard to structural effects and 
       impacts on technological change of climate change 
       policies.
