Temper our enthusiasm?

David Roberts, formerly of Grist, writes in Vox (April 22, 2016) that it has “become conventional wisdom that a price on carbon has become the sine qua non of serious climate policy.”

In Part One of a two-part post, Roberts raises questions about “carbon pricing’s primacy in policy and political circles”  and warns the reader that there is much “messy, frustrating work ” to be done, forging other policies and regulatory reforms. We shouldn’t put “all our eggs in one basket.”

No argument there! We’ll look at Roberts’ Part Two on carbon pricing in our next post.
