{{#if:Federal Climate Policy and Your Leverage on It, Paul Higgins. Lecture 20 discusses the current status of the development of policy at the federal level. Much of the discussion is related to the development of a carbon market, and the premise that a fee (i.e. tax) is a market mechanism. This stands in contrast to the popular discussion that often places the market and taxes as "opposite" policies. The lecture focuses on the design of a cap and trade system. Price safety valves and climate safety valves are introduced as mechanisms to manage the impact on the economy and the climate. The lecture also talks about the ways that citizens can influence the development of policy and the availability of internships and policy fellows in Washington.|== Lecture Summary == Federal Climate Policy and Your Leverage on It, Paul Higgins.
