How CCL’s Proposal Differs from the One REMI Studied

The policy studied by REMI was a progressive carbon tax starting at $10 per ton while our proposal calls for a progressive tax starting at $15 per ton. The escalation rate of $10 per ton per year is the same in both studies. The REMI Study only considers CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels, while CCL’s policy will also cover the emissions of all greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels as well as from any leaks.
