Should climate policies be directed towards fossil fuel producers?
During decades of international climate policy negotiations, aiming to limit demand for fossil fuels, the stock of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased considerably, and even the flow of emissions to the atmosphere continues to grow.
To reach the Paris Agreement’s goal of keeping global warming well below 2°C, substantial parts of the world’s fossil fuels simply cannot be combusted and must be left in the ground. Recent work thus suggests redirecting climate policies toward fossil fuel producers directly by capping the flows of extraction and restricting the stocks of resources available for exploration. Could this be an effective measure to reduce carbon emissions?
