Boulder’s energy tax is the right idea – but energy sources matter

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Chairman’s Blog

Taxing all energy – not just fossil fuels – will smooth decarbonisation and future-proof paying the cost of the loss and damage attributable to manmade climate change that will prevail for centuries – long after carbon emissions cease altogether. To incentivise the transition from ‘dirty’ high-carbon fuels to ‘clean’ low-carbon fuels or energy, requires a […]

The Insurance Industry is being hammered relentlessly by the devastating effects of manmade climate change and the resulting claims payouts. At PAL, we estimate that the percentage increase in insured loss and damage attributable to global warming […]

The global loss and damage arising from all weather events that were attributable to man-made climate change in 2016 was   $953,905,000,000   This is based upon estimated carbon emissions for 2016 of 37,705,000,000 tCO2, and PAL’s global one-year Carbon Loss Index (CLIX) of $25.30 per tonne of CO2. The CLIX benchmark measures loss and damage attributable to […]

Carbon Pay ® : The Third Way

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Publication

Carbon Pay ® is a scientific revolution in carbon pricing that identifies and protects against carbon liability. Cap and trade is too cumbersome. Carbon tax is too political. Carbon Pay scientifically formulates the right price of carbon, identifies the revenue payable by corporations and enables them to allocate it to formally approved projects, thereby visibly […]

PAL’s view is that the […]
