British Columbia’s Carbon Tax
A carbon tax, implemented in the Canadian province of British Columbia in 2008, is intended as an incentive to decrease greenhouse gas emissions, leading to a more sustainable future. The purpose of this project is to determine whether British Columbia’s carbon tax is an effective solution to rapidly rising carbon dioxide (CO2). This study applies Robert Gibson’s seven-part framework for analyzing environmental policies to the BC carbon tax. Results indicate that BC’s carbon tax is not a successful policy solution for decreasing CO2 emissions as it does not fully meet the requirements of Gibson’s framework.
