  • This is a much needed measure.

    This is a much needed measure in an already crumbling world. You may say that this would not help, there is already carbon in the environment. But do you want more? Having a carbon tax would let the environment recuperate. And even though a tax does not stop people from doing it, it would help. It would limit how freely people currently produce carbon. So please keep this in mind next time you produce a lot of carbon.

  • Yes, it could help.

    Carbon tax sounds like it is a good step to help prevent damage to our earth. The amount of green house gases we have in the air and pollution going on is increasing everyday. Even though carbon tax is an expensive way to go about preventing more damage, in the long run it could be worth it.

  • Carbon Tax Makes Sense

    Should there be a carbon tax? I believe there should be a carbon tax as part of a plan to address global warming with the goal of managing global warming. A carbon tax would allow industries to stay at or below a government cap on their carbon emissions. Businesses would sell or trade units of emission carbon among themselves, businesses with lower emissions trading some if credit they had for being below their cap, to businesses with higher emissions, that were in danger of exceeding their cap. Exactly how the price of shares of carbon emission credit would be priced is something that would have to be determined by government in conjunction with industry. A carbon tax would give industry incentive to keep carbon emissions low and also provide a financial framework within which industry could work to lower emissions. Headway as been made against acid rain using a similar plan that capped sulfur emissions, so there is precedent for caps on emissions as effective tools to fight environmental problems. A carbon tax would be good first step and could be an integral part of domestic and international initiatives against global warming.

  • The carbon emissions are still there.

    While it may appear that a carbon tax helps the environment, in reality it doesn't. The already existing pollution will still be there, just at a price. People pay taxes all the time, but we still use the things that have taxes on them. Why would the carbon tax be any different? Assuming that large corporations will pay the carbon tax and keep producing carbon, the carbon tax would just serve as extra taxes. While I am all in for helping the environment and stopping pollution, I don't think that a carbon tax is the right way to go.

  • I Don't think there should be an unconditional carbon tax

    Putting a tax on carbon does make sense and would be a logical way to combat climate change and global warming. However if we put out a tax that we would be required to pay no matter what, then it would severely hurt small businesses like farms that produce carbon in order to feed the world. If the tax was only on personal use then I wouldn't be against it, but this tax will only put more strain on an industry that is already having difficulties with rising costs from a suffering economy and that gets taxed on just about everything else. If we would just allow a tax break for the farmers so they aren't hurt as badly.
