There are numerous reports of climate change being attributed to the rise in carbon emissions, and it seems that people are generally welcoming to solving climate change. How would one measure that policies to mitigate climate change are actually effective with the innumerable amounts of confounding variables that would go into such a study? It seems logical to attribute increasing greenhouse gas emissions from carbon dioxide emissions by man, but it seems wrong to measure the effectiveness of climate change policies just by looking at a regression graph comparing greenhouse gas emissions and a baseline temperature. Or is it? It has peaked my mind.
