The Climate Problem Will Not Go Away Until We Put a Price on Carbon

“We need energy to raise poor people out of poverty… We can’t continue to use fossil fuels.  Science tells us we have to lower emissions and do it now…  It’s not too complex.  Governments have to put a slowly rising fee on fossil fuels…

If we wait, the danger is, we may have pushed the system beyond the tipping point for the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. .. We really have to get things happening soon… a few percent lowering of carbon emissions per year is perhaps the best we could hope for.  That requires a price on carbon.”
