Washington, DC -- With Alberta now moving toward a carbon tax, former U.S. Ambassador to Austria William Eacho will seek to build on the carbon-pricing momentum while at the Paris Climate Conference from December 4 to 10.
“A carbon fee is the simplest, most-efficient way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Eacho, a long-time business executive. “As I meet with a range of leaders in Paris, I will be making that case.” He will also be tweeting regularly from @AmbEacho.
WASHINGTON, DC -- With the COP-21 starting 14 days from now in Paris, the Partnership for Responsible Growth (PRG) today circulated 14 quotes in support of a carbon fee (or tax).
