Is climate policy like prohibition? (via In A Future Age)

Great article, highly recommend reading it.
What are the necessary steps to implement strong environmental legislation, that doesn’t become Draconian?
I’ve highlighted zoning and building laws before, my dad (a source of insight) highlighted the fact that the Clean Air Act and other environmental laws only apply to goods and services manufactured in the US. If we were to demand that any item being imported into the US meet our environmental regulations, that would also be a huge boost.
Would/could prices go up? Yes. They go up every year anyways. We might as well get something worthwhile out of the inevitable rise in prices.
