Carbon tax. Reminder to see how the CARB - California Air Resources Board - has been "captured" by corporations? Just trying to make the air breathable in LA, CA. 1967 Reagan as Governor.

CAFE standards - Corporate Average Fuel Economy

and of course ZEV credits

And now just imagine how corporations will capture a carbon tax and warp it to their benefit.
Now how about just adding tax to gasoline? Then at least your local state government will have the tax money to spend rather than DC.

Coal on the way out - no one will build another coal plant unless the government subsidies it.
I can imagine a clean coal plant being proposed and pay for by our carbon taxes, can't you?
How do you think all those atomic power plants got built? Private industry didn't build one.

250x2500=625,000 give away about $200,000 and the rest goes to who exactly? and for what benefit?
