Can A Carbon Tax Curb Climate Change?

A report released last week by the United Nations predicts climate change could lead to worsening food shortages and a host of natural disasters as soon as 2040. Jeff Nesbit, executive director of Climate Nexus, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the massive worldwide adjustments necessary to curb these effects – and if a carbon tax is part of the answer. His new book is called “This is the Way the World Ends: How Droughts and Die-Offs, Heat Waves and Hurricanes are Converging on America” (St. Martin’s Press).
