Opportunity and Costs: A potential bipartisan pathway for pricing carbon in 2025

by | Jun 7, 2024 | Policy, Webinars

There may be a political moment of opportunity for a bipartisan deal on a carbon price in 2025. The expiration of the Trump Tax cuts will stoke concerns about budget deficits and the fiscal trajectory of key trust funds. Meanwhile, there is growing pressure from an increasing number of countries adding or considering the addition of a carbon border adjustment mechanism (or CBAM) to their existing carbon pricing schemes. But for any carbon pricing deal in the United States, climate would be a secondary motivator—at best—for a substantial number of potentially supportive legislators.

In this public forum, we heard from Maya MacGuineas and Alex Flint who support a carbon price primarily from fiscal concerns. They were interviewed by Justin Worland, senior correspondent for TIME Magazine, and their conversation was followed by a panel discussion offering differing perspectives.
