Note: in the time between recording this episode and uploading it, the Senate ALSO introduced a (slightly edited) version of this bill, and the new House reintroduced it (also in slightly edited form). #nice Sources:  carbon emissions rise for 2018: https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/08/politics/us-carbon-emissions-rise-2018/index.html household impact study (how does a carbon fee and dividend policy affect people across different states/income levels/etc?): https://11bup83sxdss1xze1i3lpol4-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Ummel-Impact-of-CCL-CFD-Policy-v1_4.pdf - "Importantly, this analysis is “static” and does not consider “dynamic” effects of a carbon tax on economic growth, employment, wages, trade, production processes, or consumption patterns over time.4 Nor does it consider local or global environmental benefits.
