Carbon Tax Could Be Net Benefit to U.S. Business, Consumers

Carbon Tax Could Be Net Benefit to U.S. Business, Consumers

TheStreet (May 30, 2014) — A carbon tax should make energy and goods more expensive, but Adele Morris, economist and fellow at the Brookings Institution, is the author of a recent report that finds that a well-implemented tax could be a net benefit to U.S. businesses and consumers. In an interview with TheStreet, she notes the key to the success of such a tax would be in how the revenue is used. Exxon Mobil is one of the oil companies that has recently come out in favor of a carbon tax and Morris sees that support growing as the threat of restrictions on emissions becomes more real. The contentious implementation of a carbon tax in Australia, Morris says, is a perfect example for us of how not to do it. Video provided by TheStreet

Dominican Republic: A Country Takes Aim at Climate Change

Deutsche Welle (Feb. 11, 2013) — The Dominican Republic aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 25 percent by 2030 - an ambitious goal that has made the country one of the global leaders in the effort to combat climate change. Implementing that goal while promoting economic growth and encouraging tourism as an important economic resource poses a challenge. That's why funding is now flowing to a number of climate-protection projects, among them an initiative that encourages farmers to manage their land sustainably.

New Climate Strategy in the Dominican Republic

Deutsche Welle (Sep. 23, 2013) — The Dominican Republic is using creative ideas to help protect the environment. Just outside the capital, Santo Domingo, a cement factory generates the energy it needs by burning car tires instead of oil. And, with a little help from some worms, a hotel in the tourist destination of Punta Cana uses biomass to power its laundry service. The Caribbean country is pursuing the ambitious target of reducing its carbon dioxide emissions by 25% in the coming years -- and is receiving support from the International Climate Initiative.
