The Future Is Carbon-Priced And The US Is Getting Left Behind

6 June 2017 – Forty countries and 24 sub-national regions (states, provinces, etc.) have already or are scheduled to make polluters pay with a national or regional price on carbon. Together, these carbon pricing initiatives cover about 7 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent (GtCO2e), or about 13 percent of annual global GHG emissions. A new animated map by the Sightline Institute illustrates the recent success story of carbon pricing and shows how the US is increasingly isolated.
