Abstract

To address the climate challenge, economists advocate for a carbon tax that puts a price on greenhouse gas emissions. Roger von Haefen, Ph.D. discusses how investments in game-changing technologies can transform our energy sector, reduce the energy intensity of our cars, phones, homes and food, and make our economy more resilient to climate change.

Roger von Haefen is a professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics and associate director of the Center for Environmental and Resource Economics Policy at NC State. His research has assessed the benefits and costs of water quality improvements, beach nourishment policies, climate change, as well as the natural resource damages from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.
