First PICS forum tackles carbon pricing

BC’s carbon tax is an effective and fair pricing policy when combined with appropriate revenue recycling; carbon pricing is an essential part of the wider plan required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate chan#8805; BC has been a leader on climate change issues and federal leadership is now needed; BC’s policy must be integrated with federal and US policies as those develop; and greater public involvement is needed on climate change issues. These are some of the conclusions of the first Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) annual forum, held in Vancouver in June, which attracted around 250 participants and widespread media coverage. Delegates heard from climate change experts and policymakers from government and the business, academic and NGO communities on the topic of carbon pricing.
