Europe as a Continent and the European Union as a governmental formation are doing more than almost anybody else to keep the Paris Agremment alive. The carbon border tax is a brilliant idea to use the purchasing power of Europe to say “You might want to turn away from the Paris accord but then you’ll pay for it trough your taxes”.

Charlotte Ruhe of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development believes that Europe can become the Worlds first carbon-neutral continent. “The outline is already out there. The question is how fast can we get there.”
