The price OF carbon

Here in Australia, as in many other countries, we are fortunate enough to have a price on carbon. Not so in the USA though. Hence the need for videos like The Price of Carbon.

It points out that carbon costs us a price. Extreme weather alone has cost the USA around $100 billion in relief funds, as well as increasing people's insurance premiums and food prices.

Pricing carbon puts the cost back on the polluters - to make them pay for what they are costing us.
