In order to accelerate the speed at which decarbonisation occurs, governments can utilize a variety of climate policies.

He argues that solutions need to cover multiple issues, so what a nation loses on one issue it can gain on another, and that citizens need to use their vote to incentivise politicians to cooperate globally.
