The government orders every factory to adopt a new technology, which reduces carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The government agrees to reimburse all factories that purchase new, emissions- reducing technology in order to provide cleaner ai. The government limits total carbon dioxide emissions by all factories to 130,000 tonnes per decade.
