全美45位顶尖经济学家(包括27位诺贝尔奖获得者、美联储3位前主席)2019年1月16日在华尔街日报发表关于以碳税应对气候变化的公开信,中文翻译如下(英语原文附后):


全球气候变化是一个严重的问题,需要立即采取澳门金沙网址行动。以合理的经济原则为指导,我们共同提出以下政策建议。

一、碳税提供了最具成本效益的杠杆,以必要的规模和速度减少碳排放。通过纠正一个众所周知的市场失灵,碳税将发出强有力的价格信号,利用市场的无形之手引导经济参与者走向低碳未来。

二、碳税应该逐年增加,直到达到减排目标为止;同时确保碳税收入的中性,以避免对政府规模的争论。持续上涨的碳价将鼓励技术创新和大规模的基础设施发展,还将加速低碳商品和服务的传播。

三、足够稳定且逐步增加的碳税将取代各种效率较低的碳法规。用价格信号代替繁琐的法规将促进经济增长,并为企业长期投资清洁能源技术提供所需的监管确定性。

四、为防止碳泄漏并保护美国的竞争力,应建立基于边境的碳补偿系统。这一系统将确保高能效的美国公司在全球的竞争力,并激励其他澳门金沙网址采用类似的碳定价。

五、为了最大限度地提高碳税上涨的公平性和政治可行性,所有碳税收入都应通过平等的一次性回扣直接返还给美国公民。大多数美澳门金沙网址庭,包括最脆弱的家庭都将获益,所获得的“碳红利”将超过能源价格的提高。

Global climate change is a serious problem calling for immediate national action. Guided by sound economic principles, we are united in the following policy recommendations.

I. A carbon tax offers the most cost-effective lever to reduce carbon emissions at the scale and speed that is necessary. By correcting a well-known market failure, a carbon tax will send a powerful price signal that harnesses the invisible hand of the marketplace to steer economic actors towards a low-carbon future.

II. A carbon tax should increase every year until emissions reductions goals are met and be revenue neutral to avoid debates over the size of government. A consistently rising carbon price will encourage technological innovation and large-scale infrastructure development. It will also accelerate the diffusion of carbon-efficient goods and services.

III. A sufficiently robust and gradually rising carbon tax will replace the need for various carbon regulations that are less efficient. Substituting a price signal for cumbersome regulations will promote economic growth and provide the regulatory certainty companies need for long-term investment in clean-energy alternatives.

IV. To prevent carbon leakage and to protect U.S. competitiveness, a border carbon adjustment system should be established. This system would enhance the competitiveness of American firms that are more energy-efficient than their global competitors. It would also create an incentive for other nations to adopt similar carbon pricing.

V. To maximize the fairness and political viability of a rising carbon tax, all the revenue should be returned directly to U.S. citizens through equal lump-sum rebates. The majority of American families, including the most vulnerable, will benefit financially by receiving more in “carbon dividends” than they pay in increased energy prices.
