ABSTRACT
Focuses on a carbon tax to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Who the carbon tax will be levied on; Reason the tax on natural gas will be larger than the tax on oil; Claims that a carbon tax will reduce emissions of carbon dioxide; What reduces the economic effectiveness of a carbon tax; How a carbon tax will increase the price of fuel.
