Thank you for this chance to comment on the article in The Guardian, October 24 on the federal government’s carbon pricing plans.
Maritimers know a good deal when they see one.
Given IPCC’s call to cut annual global emissions by half over the next 12 years, the federal carbon levy is a tiny ask for a huge prize. By prize I do not mean the rebate that wipes out most people’s extra cost-of-living. I am referring to the prize of all prizes: a chance to make a difference in the outcome of the planet and humanity itself.
I understand this price on carbon with cash back is the key element in a large package of additional moves such as clean electricity throughout the economy. But it is essential. And given its proven simplicity, effectiveness and economy it merits a standing ovation.
