Blog supporting the carbon tax

Lead the Way is a blog supporting the carbon tax in BC. I have been intrigued and interested in tax shifting as a way influence public policy. Carbon tax is such an obvious way to achieve reduction of emissions through higher costs and rewarding those that avoid making CO2 emissions.

I am firmly opposed to cap and trade systems because of the red tape involved with accurately monitoring it and the very high risk of unintended consequences.

I would support and expansion of the carbon tax to other green house gases and looking at industrial emissions of CO2 we are not yet capturing with the current tax.
