Their is nothing 'punishing' about a carbon tax. It would increase efficiency, competition and jobs. Even the moderate Republicans are now embracing the idea (which is the ONLY way that fair and effective reduction in GHGs can be accomplished by current politics, IMHO).

Included is a rebate on taxes it replaces, so that no overall economic harm is done. The one piece not mentioned is that the rebate mechanism must compensate those users who have no choice but to use more energy than 'average' such as farmers.

A ridiculous blog. However, McDermott deserves whatever publicity he can get for doing the right thing.
