Title: What are the implications of Mexico's climate change law?

Abstract: Mexico's Congress in April passed a landmark climate change law after three years of debate and revisions, Reuters reported. The bill's mandates require that 35 percent of Mexico's energy come from renewable sources by 2024 and carbon emissions must be 50 percent below 2000 levels by 2050, among other requirements. What will be the effects of Mexico's new climate law? Will the energy sector be able to meet the increased demand for renewable power? How do other Latin American countries' future energy plans compare with Mexico, and are they likely to adopt similar legislation? Does the law's passage reflect pessimism about the possibility of a global consensus on climate change mitigation?
