In an op-ed for The Hill, Stepp and Trembath argue that carbon taxes are doomed to fail because they do little to drive what is needed most: innovation that generates affordable clean energy that all seven billion humans will want to adopt, not out of altruism or coercion, but out of self-interest. To truly address climate change government must focus on developing policies that create a robust clean energy ecosystem that can produce the new ideas, technologies and products necessary to get us to zero emissions.
