Resources Magazine: Ensuring Competitiveness under a US Carbon Tax
Tax exemptions, industry rebates, and border tax adjustments can help protect the competitiveness of industries affected by a carbon tax, but they are not equally efficient at achieving economic and environmental goals. In the latest issue of Resources, RFF scholars Carolyn Fischer, Richard Morgenstern, and Nathan Richardson examine the issues.
The Past, Present, and Future of Carbon Markets
New research explores lessons learned to date from carbon markets around the world and presents new issues to be examined in the future, such as the linking of existing markets.
Answering Questions about a Carbon Tax: How New Natural Gas Supplies Impact the Electricity Sector
Resources magazine: This infographic illustrates the potential revenue of a carbon tax and looks at the role natural gas plays in electricity generation.
The Coming US Carbon Market: Planning for Ex Post Analysis
RFF experts have developed several background memos on cap-and-trade and carbon tax systems to provide informative overviews and highlight current work, available data, and potential research limitations.
Protecting Coastal Environments to Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Preventing the release of “blue carbon” stored in mangroves, sea grasses, and salt marshes may be an effective way to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the air. A new RFF report details the possibilities.
US Status on Climate Change Mitigation
The United States is on course to achieve greenhouse gas emissions reductions of 16.3 percent from 2005 levels in 2020—despite a lack of comprehensive climate legislation. RFF Senior Fellow Dallas Burtraw and coauthor Matthew Woerman examine the factors contributing to this outcome.
US Energy Subsidies: Effects on Energy Markets and Carbon Dioxide Emissions
RFF researchers look at how federal energy-related spending programs and tax provisions impacted US emissions of carbon dioxide between 2005 and 2009, finding a change toward reductions in emissions over that time period.
Blue Carbon: A Potentially Winning Climate Strategy
Protecting coastal mangrove forests may be a highly competitive, cost-effective approach for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, according to a recent study by experts from RFF and the University of California, Davis.
Cap and Trade in California: Auction Revenues and Options for the Electricity Sector
In two new RFF discussion papers, Dallas Burtraw, David McLaughlin, and Sarah Jo Szambelan take a look at California’s pending cap-and-trade program, examining the implications of appropriating auction revenues, for the electricity sector and the state generally.
The Variability of Potential Revenue from a Carbon Tax
Implementing a carbon tax in the United States could help reduce the large and growing federal budget deficit as well as emissions of carbon dioxide. A new issue brief from RFF experts helps explain what policymakers could expect in terms of revenue.
The Potential Role of Carbon Labeling in a Green Economy
A new RFF discussion paper examines how much of an impact product labeling could have on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Analysis of the Bingaman Clean Energy Standard Proposal
In a new discussion paper, RFF experts dissect the latest federal proposal for a clean energy standard.
Rethinking Environmental Federalism in a Warming World
In a new discussion paper, William Shobe and RFF Senior Fellow Dallas Burtraw highlight the importance of accounting for the federal relationship between national and subnational levels of government.
Regulating Greenhouse Gases from Coal Power Plants under the Clean Air Act
New research from RFF experts confirms that there are important, low-cost opportunities to reduce CO2 emissions at existing coal-fired facilities in the short run.
How the United States Can Support REDD+ Programs
Efforts to reduce deforestation in developing tropical countries continue to provide promising opportunities to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while simultaneously addressing development concerns.
Parsing the Flexibility of EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Rules
Clean Air Act experts recently gathered at RFF to discuss the way forward for EPA in regulating greenhouse gases. Key insights are now available online.
Are Energy Efficiency Standards Economically Efficient?
With a portfolio of emissions reductions options available, pulling the proper policy lever can be tricky. New analysis suggests that energy efficiency standards don’t look that promising on economic grounds, either on their own or in combination with pricing instruments.
Climate, Trade, and International Interconnectivity
A new RFF Discussion Paper takes a closer look at the intersection of domestic climate change policies and international trade.
Banking Emissions Allowances: A Checkered Legacy
The treatment of banked emissions allowances under a series of cap-and-trade systems to curb major air pollutants has produced mixed results.
The Implications of Choosing a “Hard” or “Soft” Price Collar
A new RFF paper analyzes how different options for controlling the costs of climate regulation in the United States fare in terms of expected emissions and overall program costs.
