A Roadmap for a Secure, Low-Carbon Energy Economy 3.2.2009 WRI Publications
At first glance, improving energy security and addressing climate change may seem irreconcilable goals: achieve an adequate, reliable, and affordable energy supply for the United States, while at the same time reducing emissions of dangerous global warming gases into the atmosphere. After all, most of the world’s energy comes from burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas – which are also major sources of greenhouse gases. Without scalable low-carbon replacements for these fuels, actions to reduce emissions could destabilize the current energy system. On the other hand, continued dependence on these fuels will jeopardize our climate. The hard truth is that the United States—and the world—must now figure out how to achieve ...

With a carbon tax, there is little evidence that we could get the price right ...
