Taking Action on the Environment
Climate changes will affect our future ability to satisfy human needs, in both positive and negative ways.

Many environmental changes that are consistent with global warming can already be detected today.

NPT is motivated towards creating AWARENESS on the environment and redirecting the attention of policy makers to these areas.

Art as an Enviromental Policy
Policies and measures should be selected only after rigorous evaluation. How well will tthe policy achieve its goal of reducing emission? How reliable will it achieve that goal? Will its effectiveness erode overtime? Will it create continual incentives to improve products or processes in ways that reduce emissions and other forms of environmental polution? Will the policy have wider environmental effects, such as improved local air quality? Will the policy achieve its environment goal at the lowest cost, taking into account transaction, information, and enforcement costs? What additional benefits will the policy or measure have? Is the policy politically acceptable? What are the administrative requirements? Could the policy be enforced? How will it interact with other government objectives? Will it contribute to changing attitudes and increasing awareness of climate change?

These and many more questions explains the feasibility and effectiveness edge an Art policy will have on the environment.
