    I think that this is a pretty important article as it analyses how to implement carbon pricing, the most important tool to mitigate climate change, in terms of political, social and economical aspects.

    I am wondering how countries with carbon pricing would deal with actors that have negative carbon emissions, i.e. that scrub CO_2 from the atmosphere. I'm not sure if any such actors exist right now, but some likely will in the future. This is going to be important as the CO_2 that is already out there by itself has negative long term consequences, even with no further emissions. So will these actors be negatively taxed or subsidized? Will the carbon price become high enough to make carbon capture profitable?
