  • Attitudes to personal carbon allowances: political trust, fairness and ideology
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Climate Policy. - James & James Science Publishers Ltd/Earthscan. - 1469-3062. ; 10:4, s. 410-431

    • The idea of personal carbon allowances (PCAs) was presented by the UK Environment Secretary, David Miliband, in 2006. Although no nation state is seriously developing proposals for them, they have been discussed within academia, NGOs and policy-making circles. PCAs can be seen as a logical extension of emissions trading schemes, which has so far only applied at the firm level, to individuals. The purpose of this article is to analyse some critical aspects of the public's support for a PCA scheme. In particular, the focus is on the relationship between people's attitudes to a PCA scheme and their trust in politicians, its perceived fairness, and its underlying ideology, respectively. The relationship between people's attitudes towards an increase in the current carbon tax rate and their attitudes towards an implementation of a PCA scheme is analysed. The study is based on a mail questionnaire sent out to a random, representative sample in Sweden.

  • Attitudes towards CO2 taxation - Is there an Al Gore effect?
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Applied Economics Letters. ; 17:9, s. 845-848
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Fuel taxes are one of the most powerful climate policies. Yet, these taxes have not been given very much attention in the global debate regarding climate policy, compared with other instruments, such as tradable emission permits. This article shows, however, that the immense media coverage during fall 2006 significantly affected people's attitudes towards the CO2 tax on gasoline. We conducted a survey where we asked for people's opinions about the CO2 tax in September and in December 2006, i.e. before and after the release of Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth' and the Stern Review. We found that the attitude towards the level of the CO2 tax was significantly changed after these events; people became much more positive towards the tax. This signals that using the CO2 tax as an important climate policy becomes more politically feasible and legitimate when more attention is drawn to climate change problems.
