Lessons Learned from Down Under

Carbon taxes and renewable mandates drive electricity prices up. The experience in Australia offers a dramatic example.

Australia has some of the highest electricity prices in the developed world.

The United States can learn a lesson from Down Under by rejecting costly proposed carbon rules on power plants.
