PBS: "Policies to Reduce CO2"
RFF's Billy Pizer discusses the benefits and costs of a carbon tax in an episode of Energy Switch.
Carbon-based fuels provide more than 80% of global energy. To reduce emissions will take time and money. What are the benefits of a carbon tax? Or would it be more effective to encourage carbon-reducing technologies? Dr. Billy Pizer, the Vice President of Research and Policy Engagement at Resources for the Future, and Sasha Mackler, the Executive Director of the Bipartisan Policy Center discuss.
