  • 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.
