Carbon Taxes
Psychological Barriers
knowledge gap between ordinary people and environmental experts from different disciplines (Packalén 2010)

lack of cultural perspective

no value placed on anthropological research and perspective (Henning 2005)

Trust across countries

Policy Challenges
Cost Determination

Tax Collection

Potential negative effect on social welfare (Jorgenson et al 1992)

Role politicians have in passing tax legislation (Sumner et al 2011)

Difficult to obtain real observational evidence
1. Dragons of Inaction

2. Do No Harm Effect

3. Identifiability Effect

4. Endowment Effect

5. Tax is a "Dirty" Word

partnerships with climate change advocacy groups (Crate 2011, Henning 2005)

culturally appropriate solutions to solve rising carbon dioxide emissions

Pigouvian System vs Gradual Tax (Wirl 2014)

Upstream Collection Method (Lackner & Wilson 2008)
Cultural Connections and Input
International Regulatory Bodies
Offset Revenue (Gardner 2008)
Psychology Solutions
Use a word besides tax like offset or fee
