Beyond Carbon Pricing: Tax Reform is Climate Policy

March 1, 2021

CSSN Scholar Jessica F. Green urges a turn towards combatting global wealth inequality, rather than a more narrow focus on carbon pricing, in a new piece in Global Policy.

“This article seeks to expand our collective political imagination about climate policy, moving beyond mundane fights about the appropriate design of carbon pricing. Instead, we need to think bigger. Aggressive climate policy begins with a reassertion of state sovereignty.”

She also shared key points from the paper in a Twitter thread.
