"There also will be pushback from the communities, unions and industries concerned about the impacts such a policy could have on them, Mares said.

As to who would be most affected, 'the countries with stronger climate policies will get hurt if the countries with lesser climate policies are unresponsive to this proposal or push back on it,' said Flannery, who is working with Mares on border adjustment policies. 'If everybody agreed to go ahead in the same way, you could sort out the winners and the losers, but I don't think everybody is going to march to the same tune.'"
