Logic 101: a) combustion of carbon-based fuels is causing dangerous global warming; b) we need to stop that ASAP; c) ergo, we need to slash our combustion of carbon-based fuels (and replace them with energy efficiency and non-carbon-based energy sources, which are increasingly as cheap or even cheaper than fossil fuels). Any further questions?
P.S. The good news is that a revenue-neutral carbon tax “creates jobs, grows the economy, saves lives, and makes Americans richer” while slashing carbon emissions. Win. Win. Win. Win. Win.
