Flacktard forgets the acid rain of the late 80's.<quoted text> And just how does paying a price for carbon stop climate change? Friggin' libtard loon!!!!
Under George HW Bush ( back when Republicans cared more about their country than their party), a cap & trade policy was put in place. The Cap & trade made it more costly to pollute & less costly not to pollute.
All the little Flacktsrds had a fit. "OMG OMG it will cost jobs, it will kill companies OMG OMG".
But it did not cost jobs or hurt business. By making it more expensive to emit gasses like SO2, it cut these emissions & solved the acid rain problem.
That cap & trade is still in effect.
Putting a carbon tax would make emitting carbon more expensive and reduce CO2 emissions.
Its not that complicated.
Reducing carbon emission will help lower the greenhouse gas effect & reduce global warming.
