|Can We Talk About the Carbon Tax?.
This month's forum will present a discussion on the Carbon Tax: What is a carbon tax? Is it an effective tool to reduce carbon emissions? What are the prospects for adoption in Massachusetts?
Lexington's State Senator Mike Barrett will be joined by Gilbert Metcalf, Professor of Economics, Tufts University and Christopher Knittel, Professor of Energy Economics, Sloan School of Management, MIT for a discussion of the pros and cons of policies to price carbon. Senator Barrett is co-author of a bill to create a carbon tax which is now working its way through the state legislature.
