U.N. Report: Avoiding Climate Change Possible With 'Substantial Emission Reductions'


Eight Nobel Prize-wining economists and the Harvard economist who a co-author of the latest IPCC report advocate a consumer-friendly carbon tax to transition efficiently to clean energy without economic pain. A steadily increasing carbon pollution tax rebated directly to consumers, a "tax swap," will let the market make the switch to renewables as carbon fuels get increasingly more expensive than solar and wind. Revenue-neutral and no government regulations. As they scale up, solar and wind get cheaper and storage/intermittency problem has been solved. See The Citizens Climate Lobby website for details and get involved, or at least write Congress.
