Here’s a piece from yesterday’s WaPo entitled, “Tax on Carbon Emissions Gains Support,” subtitled, “Industry and Experts Promote It as Alternative to Help Curb Greenhouse Gases.” Only problem is, when you read the article, there’s precious little support form industry, just the support from the usual lefties. In fact, we couldn’t find anyone from “industry” quoted at all in support of the idea of a carbon tax.
There are lots of ideas on the table, that’s for sure, but mark us down as skeptical on two fronts. First, let’s see the science and second, let’s see how a “tax” — any tax — will work, and let’s make sure it’s not going to be a job killer. Then maybe “industry” will weigh in. ‘Til then, let’s not mis-characterize things or see support where there is none.
