The Economic, Climate, Fiscal, Power, and Demographic Impact of a National Fee-and-Dividend Carbon Tax

This report, prepared for Citizens’ Climate Lobby, examines the various impacts of a revenue-neutral carbon tax, broken down by the nine census regions of the United States. Impacts are calculated based on the modeling of a carbon tax of $10 per ton of carbon dioxide, implemented in 2016, and increasing linearly by $10 per year. The modeling results estimate economic, employment and health benefits for most U.S. regions.
