Heiland Lecture: Dr. Philip Nelson

March 21, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

 


“Putting a price on carbon–who wants it, when, how, and how much?”

Dr. Philip Nelson, Citizens Climate Lobby

Numerous pathways are being pursued to reduce the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.  Economists favor a price on carbon; many governments are implementing or considering a price on carbon.  Other supporters of a price on carbon include academic institutions, major corporations (including international oil and gas firms), and a wide variety of civic organizations.  In the U.S., the tension between support and opposition to a price on carbon reflects the political divide.  I will examine the two primary forms of carbon pricing—cap and trade vs a carbon tax—along with successes and failures in their implementation.
