Vehcile carbon taxes, criminology, and climate change policy
What is it about?
Provides an empirical method for taxing vehicle owners annually based on vehicle efficiency and costs to offset the volume of co-2 equivalent pollution a vehicle generates. Fines would be used to buy offset credits on the co-2 market. Compared to other systems, vehicle manufactures are not provided with an incentive to oversell efficient vehicles to offset the sale of inefficient vehicles. Vehicle pollution costs are shifted from manufacturers to vehicle owners.
Why is it important?
Criminologists neglect the development of environmental policies useful for controlling green crimes. This chapter provides an example of an empirical model that can be use for such purposes.
