Conservatives are now debating carbon taxes. Here’s why many are still skeptical.

Vox quotes CEI`s Marlo Lewis on carbon taxes:

Some conservatives had their own counterargument to this. During the Q&A session, Marlo Lewis of the Competitive Enterprise Institute argued that there was also a fat-tail risk against bad policy. What if, say, we enacted a massive global carbon tax and it left millions of people in the developing world in poverty? (One might interject that we can always reverse carbon policies that prove disastrous, whereas we can't reverse 6°F or 8°F or 11°F of warming, though no one did here.)
