LASER TALK: Carbon Pricing is the Most Silver Bullet-ish Policy We Know Of
In June 11, 2020, it was estimated in the En-ROADS simulator that just implementing a highly predictable carbon pricewould prevent 1.2 °C of global heating by 2100 compared to business as usual. Changing any other single policies in thesimulator could prevent up to 0.5 °C of global heating by 2100. This makes implementing a highly predictable carbon priceby far the most impactful single policy change in preventing global temperature increase in the simulator.
CCL Canada respectfully acknowledges that the work we support stretches across the homes of many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples on Turtle Island and that their traditional knowledge must be significantly incorporated as part of meaningful action on the climate crisis. We acknowledge that they are traditional owners and custodians of this land and that for decades they have been the first line of defence against climate breakdown. Indigenous resistance has stopped at least 1.8 billion metric tonnes of greenhouse gas pollution on Turtle Island.
