  •  Zero order thinking is so wonderful (4+ / 0-)

    where you don't look at the actual consequences. The idea is that we price carbon higher, and get the development of  cheaper wind and solar much more quickly in return. Those whose bills are temporarily higher and can least afford it should get some of the carbon tax rebated to them.

    Right now, we pay massive subsidies to carbon fuel companies, directly and through our bloated military. When we have energy independence, we won't have to prop up corrupt governments in oil-rich countries.

    You argue like a Republican concern troll.
