More Description

As Congress takes up climate legislation and the administration reengages in multilateral climate negotiations, policymakers are particularly concerned about the effect of climate policy on US carbon-intensive manufacturing industries The question for policymakers drafting climate policy today is how to level the playing field for US carbon-intensive industries during a period of uncertainty about the shape of the multilateral framework to come. Options for addressing competitiveness and "emissions leakage in US climate policy fall into three categories: reducing the cost of compliance for domestic producers, imposing similar costs on foreign producers indirectly through an adjustment at the border, and encouraging foreign countries to to impose similar costs on their industries directly. This book evaluates these options in terms of the degree to which they create a level playing field for US industry, their effectiveness in guarding against emissions and other factors.
