What’s a Carbon Tax?

According to carbontax.org, a carbon tax is “a tax on the carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels.” The carbon content of every fossil fuel is measurable, and can be judiciously taxed in a revenue-neutral fashion.

Carbon taxes are not applied to US citizens, but act as a corporate tax, and are effectively applied only to those corporations whose emissions are above the taxable threshold. Carbon bonded to manufactured products, such as plastic, is not included in the carbon tax.
