LASER TALK: Carbon Pricing is the Most Silver Bullet-ish Policy We Know Of
Posted on June 15, 2020 in Laser Talk
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.
