Addressing Global Warming Using Market-based Mechanisms
The Political Science Department of the United States Naval Academy offers a course to 3rd and 4th year Political Science majors on Energy and Security. Dominic Marcellino, Fellow at Ecologic Institute, was invited to provide a guest lecture on the use of market mechanisms in climate change policy.
In addition to discussing the relative merits (political and economic) of emissions trading systems and carbon taxes, Dominic also discussed with the students the prospects of climate change legislation in the United States and the current situation internationally.
