You don’t want too much of a carbon tax because it would be disruptive in other ways. And you probably wouldn’t want to apply it to exported products, because that would put them at a competitive disadvantage. But a modest and properly applied carbon tax could help to grow a new industry here. Taxes are neither good nor bad, btw. In fact you can’t have a democracy without taxes. The question is, is the right tax? Is it the right tool for the job? Will it so what it’s intended to do?
