“‘If you think about carbon price relative to raising people’s income taxes, when you put it in the whole fiscal conversation that’s going to happen in 2025, it’s going to look more attractive,’ Catherine Wolfram, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist and former Treasury official in the Biden administration, told me.
