Kraft column argues imperative of carbon tax, more expensive fossil fuels

The latest McClatchy-Tribune News Service column by Michael E. Kraft, professor emeritus of political science and Public and Environmental Affairs, comes out strong for a revenue-neutral carbon tax as a way to fight climate change. “The higher price of carbon-based fuels will discourage their use, promote the search for alternative fuels and stimulate energy efficiency. Such a policy relies on market mechanisms that conservatives advocate, which makes bipartisan cooperation possible if not assured.” The Bradenton (Fla.) Herald is one of the outlets that carried the column.
