Policy Options for Addressing Carbon Tax Impacts to Households
Carbon pricing remains the strongest option for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change. But such a policy still faces serious political hurdles in part because of the perception that a carbon tax would most negatively impact the poor. Clayton Munnings and Daniel Morris address the potential of a carbon tax to actually be progressive in a new RFF issue brief.

A team of experts from RFF and Yale have examined the details and prospects for the cap-and-trade programs in California and the Northeast in this new feature.
