    Each American citizen should get an equal share of the total allowed Greenhouse emissions. Emitters should buy them to cover their emissions. The trade in shares should go on the public commodity exchange, trades taxed a little to pay for regulation by the Federal government and inspection by state/local governments.

    Monetize the public resource. The smaller the cap gets, the more each person's share is worth. Give the bankers something to trade. The conversion to these limits could happen within a year, amidst wild enthusiasm.
