      The Wall Street Journal Is Wrong Here: Low Carbon Permit Prices Are Just Great

      The Wall Street Journal tells us that the entire edifice of Europe's attempt at controlling carbon emissions has come tumbling down.

      The Experts: Should There Be a Price on Carbon Emissions?

      Yes, there should be a price on carbon emissions.

Unfortunately, policies that dole out money and hide costs are often more politically palatable than policies that make costs explicit.
