    setting up a straw man, like this isn't the "right time" to raise taxes on gasoline because
    a) there's a recession
    b) the economiews booming. A tax would slow down expansion.
    c) the economy's stalled, a tax would create a recession.

    Fighting global warming will increase jobs with a future and help your children and grandchildren's world be more livable. Not doing so forfeits the future to China, India, etc.

    •  not a tax - fee and dividend (0+ / 0-)

      it's a good idea for how to put a price on carbon, and it's not a tax.

      fee and dividend.
