The problem with solutions to AGW is that there are a LOT of improvements needed in a LOT of areas, from improved energy efficiency to green power generation.

The number of changes needed to make serious inroads is way beyond the capacity of even a Congress that was working 'effectively'. It is totally beyond the current political system.

Economists will HAVE to propose a carbon surchage (funds collected are rebated based on average use) or shift income and payroll taxes to a "carbon tax" which would be a 'consumption tax'.

In both cases, the move should be 'revenue neutral' to prevent damage to the economic recovery.
