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

Odyssey Networks (June 9, 2014) — The EPA recently announced its most aggressive plan ever to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the United States: 30% by 2030. Cutting the poisonous greenhouse gas is the first of three objectives outlined in Obama’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) and forms part of what Obama calls “a moral obligation to leave our children a planet that’s not polluted.” According to The Nature Conservancy, if climate change continues at its current rate, a quarter of the earth's species could be extinct by the year 2015.
