Cap-and-trade versus carbon tax: Is a cap-and-trade more fair to producers?

  • Cap-and-trade not really fair

    the reason that cap-and trade is more fair to producers is because as we all know big business has the money to lobby that the emissions be placed higher for them as opposed to everyone else, and if that happens then we as the public will get stuck paying higher taxes for lower emissions.

  • Carbon tax is more fair

    A carbon tax is far more fair to the general population, including producers, than cap-and-trade, which is just a silly attempt to make the mitigation of carbon emissions into some sort of business. The reality is, we need to take strong action on carbon emissions, and we can't simply leave it to the market.
