As Climate Change Policy Takes Shape, Will the US Ever Put a Price on Carbon?
RFF President and CEO Richard Newell is quoted several times in a CNBC story about the feasibility of several climate policies.
The U.S. has considered carbon import fees and emissions trading that would apply to carbon-intensive products imported to the country. "But carbon import fees only make sense if you have some kind of domestic U.S. carbon policy," says Richard Newell, president of Resources for the Future, a nonpartisan energy and environment research organization."
Newell is quoted six times in this publication.
