New policy report on how U.S. Climate Policy can Drive Foreign Policy

In our effort to contribute to policy solutions, we offer this brief by Dr. Roy Wehrle, Dr. Don Wuebbles, and Dr. Francine van den Brandeler, entitled U.S. Climate Policy Driving Foreign Policy. The United States has a unique opportunity to enlist other nations in effective climate action by adopting a strong climate policy at home.  This double play of domestic policy enabling U.S. international climate leadership is a powerful way for the U.S. to return to the global stage and help meet the United Nations’ target for 2050 net-zero emissions.

Additional details on the benefits of carbon pricing policy can be found in our report, Addressing Climate Change Using a Carbon Tax & Dividend Plan Within a Global Compact.
