In the first paper of the Carbon Tax Research Iniatitive series, Jason Bordoff and John Larsen outline important design considerations of a carbon tax in the United States.

Writing in Nature Energy, Jason Bordoff argues that the Trump administration’s domestic plans would have curtailed the nation’s climate action even if it had stayed in the Paris Agreement. Yet, the decision to leave the agreement undermines US international energy and climate leadership and the prospects of ramping up global climate policy ambition.

Director Jason Bordoff writes in Thomson Reuters that if President-elect Trump wants to keep his promise to achieve "energy independence," he must continue on the Obama Administration's path of raising fuel economy standards to cut oil use.
