APEBC (Vancouver): Carbon Pricing - Where We Are and Where This is Going
"Carbon Pricing": Where We Are and Where This is Going
Speaker: Aldyen Donnelly, Principal, WDA Consulting Inc.
In December, 2017, the Government of Canada and most provinces agreed to a "minimum national carbon price" policy. Ms. Donnelly will speak about what this "carbon price" likely does and does not mean in the context of Canada's Paris Agreement commitments and changes in US leadership, with some focus on the economic and emissions impact modeling tools that currently inform the federal policy-making process. Aldyen proposes to present evidence explaining why most pollution pricing schemes are popular, but also largely ineffective, as pollution control policies. She will also offer evidence-based opinions as to what proved, more effective, and highly efficient environmental protection regulations look like.
