From RFF: Your Personal Carbon Tax Calculator has Arrived

Sep 25, 2017

WASHINGTON—Researchers at Resources for the Future (RFF) regularly are asked by policymakers and reporters to estimate the impact of a specific carbon tax price path on future carbon dioxide emissions. Normally, to project future emissions under a carbon tax, RFF utilizes a large-scale, computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the US economy—the Goulder-Hafstead Energy-Environment-Economy (E3) CGE Model.

Now, to make information as accessible as possible about the impact of carbon taxes, Dr. Marc Hafstead has devised a simple-to-use carbon tax calculator. Find the link to the carbon tax calculator in his new blog post—Introducing the E3 Carbon Tax Calculator: Estimating Future CO2 Emissions and Revenues.

Resources for the Future does not take institutional positions. Please attribute any findings to the authors or the research itself. For example, use "According to research from RFF …" rather than "According to RFF …".
