I would like to ask Al Gore how a carbon tax will effect the economy especially now. Businesses will undoubtably pass this tax along to the consumers and slow employment especially for those companies that do not receive incentives from the government to change their practices. The tax will have a ripple effect through the economy and I am not convinced that it will be a positive one.
I can see how some industries will spring up but I wonder if this is enough to offset those businesses and people who will not be able to participate in the new green economy from an employment or even standard of living perspective due to lack of access and qualifications.
