ABSTRACT
The article discusses international carbon dioxide mitigation and taxing of imports of countries that do not commit to carbon reductions. The use of such border taxes in international carbon cap-and-trade agreements is explained. Conflicts that can be raised by border taxes are exemplified by the state of Michigan's decision to impose a border tax on electricity imports from North Dakota. The author says that the failure of the December 2009 climate meetings in Copenhagen, Denmark has escalated interest in the use of carbon border taxes.
