Latest “Conservative” Carbon Tax Proposal: Rep. Carlos Carbelo’s Market Choice Act Draft Bill Summary Available Here!

The House is expected to vote this week on H.Con.Res.119 expressing the sense of Congress that a carbon tax is detrimental to the U.S. economy. The House passed similar legislation in June 2016 by 237 to 163, with six Democrats voting in favor and no Republicans voting against.

The vote is apparently timed to put House members on record once again before Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R.-Fla.), co-chair of the so-called Climate Solutions Caucus, introduces a carbon tax bill he reportedly has been shopping to colleagues, businesses, and environmental groups.

In good Orwellian fashion, Curbelo calls his plan, which would rig energy markets against the fuels that supply 80 percent of U.S. energy, the “Market Choice Act.” A summary of the bill, dated June 1, 2018, is available here.

“May Cooler Heads Prevail.” As well as “Heads” that reflect and communicate facts rather than myths and bad science. Blue Planet in Green Shackles (Vaclav Klaus) – though aging – still brings insight and light to the issue(s).
