    • Lol - well taxes are not a joy, but they are necessary sometimes. Yes, I want everyone to be taxed for their carbon footprint. The taxing itself is necessary to shift demand into lower carbon ways of living. You bet if the price of fuel suddenly doubles there will be all kinds of ways folks try to adapt. It is time to do some adapting.

      Now what to do with the tax is a separate issue. It might be too much to hope that it is wisely used for egalitarian purposes. I think there are all sorts of proposals - people love to spend money. I am pretty sure that even if they take my advice and tax me, they still won't let me choose how to spend it.
