A carbon tax was always going against the grain — against the presumption that the most straightforward and effective approach to carbon emissions pricing couldn’t prevail over America’s special-interest politics and tax aversion — and against the smart money that insisted on hiding the price and buying off the opposition.
This national conference co-hosted by and held at Wesleyan University in central Connecticut, will explore educational, organizing and political strategies to directly price carbon emissions and to build the essential cornerstone of effective climate policy: policies that transparently and equitably put a price on carbon pollution.
IPS Co-Director of the Sustainable Energy and Economy Network, Daphne Wysham is among an impressive and diverse roster of speakers, that also include members of Congress from both sides of the aisle. Daphne will be part of the 3pm Saturday workshop about “Offsets, Environmental Justice, and Emissions Trading”.
