The Carbon/Energy Tax and Industry: Exploding the Myths, S. Roberts,
Apr. 1992. Intended to counter misleading industry claims about the proposed EC
carbon/energy tax. The proposal still has significant weaknesses, such as its
contingence on similar action by the U.S. and Japan, and exceptions for heavy
energy users such as the steel and chemical industries.
Efficiency without Tears: "No Regrets" Energy Policy To Combat
Climate Change, T. Jackson, Aug. 1992. Proposes policies that would alter
the current trend in the U.K. toward uneconomic and carbon-intensive energy
technologies. They include a small carbon tax, which would support energy
conservation investments through a U.K. national energy bank.
