World Trade Organization chief warns: World needs global carbon price and tax reform for carbon-heavy trade – or will miss 2030 climate goals

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, director-general of the World Trade Organization, told the World Economic Forum in Davos that decarbonizing global trade and supply chains must occur in a way that does not disadvantage the Global South.


(Sounds like a carbon price with carbon border adjustment mechanism: CBAM.)

CBAM? What's that?

How else can the global economy harmonize carbon pricing?

You're about to hear a lot more about CBAM's, so watch Niskanen Center's climate policy manager Shuting Pomerleau discuss Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanisms with over 500 audience members at CCL's December's conference. Hear about the goals, importance, and policy design considerations of carbon border adjustments. Wonky, yes, but ready or not, here it comes.


Doubt, Denial and Delay -- that was yesterday. Now it's Deception, Distraction, Disinformation and Doomism. Don't buy it. For more, watch Dr. Michael Mann's talk at Book Passage on The New Climate War. 

You're invited, but...

Make an appointment. Business attire recommended. Bring nothing that even looks like a weapon.
