There is disagreement regarding whether a traditional carbon tax or the more innovative PCT would be the most effective and acceptable method by which to tackle carbon dioxide emissions from personal activities.
Research to date has largely focused on technical feasibility, acceptability, efficiency and effectiveness from a theoretical perspective, with very few studies actually applying social survey methods to investigate behavioural responses to and the acceptability of such schemes.
