New paper finds CO2 emissions self-regulate as economic prosperity increases, without carbon taxes. From the journal Global Environmental Change.

Evidence from recent four decades indicates that per capita carbon dioxide emission first significantly and monotonously increase at low income level and flattens after per capita income reaches at about 22,000 $ (2005 constant price). A 'first-rise-then-flat' relationship of carbon dioxide per capita and GDP per capita was found...

Populations in many of these countries are flat or declining, meaning that CO2 emissions are doing the same.
