Toward a Global Excise on Carbon

Cnossen, Sijbren and Vollebergh, Herman

Abstract:

Explains that by imposing a carbon excise on fossil fuels, the level of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere would be reduced significantly. Since the earth's atmosphere is a common property resource, international coordination in collecting and enforcing the levy at country level is required.
