If 2019 was the year of the carbon pricing proposal, 2020 has been the year of carbon pricing scrutiny. Some decisionmakers have questioned the potential distributional and environmental justice impacts of carbon pricing policies. While a number of new climate proposals have embraced carbon pricing, others have included few or no carbon pricing elements.
On Tuesday, October 20, Resources for the Future hosted a RFF Live event, which reignited the conversation from 2019's Future of Carbon Pricing event to talk about the forecast for carbon pricing in 2020 and beyond. The commenters reflected on what has changed in the past year, and how various election outcomes could influence the path forward.
