Implement a Carbon Tax for the Purposes of Protecting the Environment

This petition had 22 supporters


Current global temperatures are approaching the 2° Celsius margin, after which it is predicted it will be feasibly and financially impossible to revert the effects of climate change. Implementing a carbon tax now proportional to the amount of carbon emitted would result in price increases on coal and gas substantial enough to decrease fossil fuel use, and as a result, carbon dioxide emissions. Price Increases would also be a crucial factor to promote competitive alternatives, helping sustain the environment while still fulfilling our energy needs.
