Argument: A carbon tax helps reduce emissions in all industries


Glenn Cannon, General Manager, Waverly Light and Power, and Past Chair of the American Public Power Association (In an Email message to Carbon Tax Center. 12 Mar. 2007): “To me, a carbon tax make the most sense in any strategy where we want to achieve meaningful reductions in all sectors of the economy.”

Carbon Tax Center – “Carbon taxes address emissions of carbon from every sector, whereas cap-and-trade systems discussed to date have only targeted the electricity industry, which accounts for less than 40% of emissions.”
