THE NEW ADMINISTRATION
The arrival of the Clinton-Gore
Administration in January is expected to bring a change in environmental
policies for the U.S. Both men favor market approaches to emission reduction,
such as tradable emission credits. In Earth in the Balance, a book
written before his candidacy, Gore advocated sweeping programs aimed at global
sustainable development, including a revenue-neutral tax on fossil fuels.
Clinton is willing to consider a carbon tax and mandatory automobile fuel
standards under certain conditions. (See a special report in Intl. Environ.
Rptr., pp. 762-763, Nov. 18, 1992; Global Environ. Change Rep., pp.
3-4, Nov. 6.)
According to Environ. Rptr. Curr. Devel. (pp. 1737-1738, Nov. 13),
the U.S. EPA is preparing an analysis of taxes on carbon-based fuels that will
be offered to the Clinton-Gore transition team.
