Bloomberg and The Carbon Tax
I'm starting to like this guy. He gets it. Obviously its good that he's independently wealthy so he doesn't have to worry about special interests which makes him able to make tough decisions. He recently announced his support for a National Carbon Tax. The only question I have about this tax is who it will benefit. Some folks are going to want it to lower their taxes. Transit providers are going to want a share due to their obvious carbon reduction benefits. And with the highwaymen always want more funding and are possibly looking at a new sources for their addiction. So we'll have to see where the conversation goes before we can get too pumped up about it. But as of now it seems to be going in the right direction.
