Carbon Pricing

Carbon pricing options: status quo, regulation, cap & trade, carbon tax, carbon fee & dividend

Carbon pricing makes fossil fuels more expensive, which in turn decreases their use over time.  Carbon pricing has the potential to lessen climate change and drive people to switch to cheaper and cleaner forms of energy like wind and solar. Wesleyan has joined others in higher education by incorporating carbon impact into its sustainability efforts. Acting as if carbon pricing was being implemented on a national scale, Wesleyan will focus on projects with high carbon footprints to draw out the best value price and lowest carbon impact.
