I agree the carbon tax will work but I keep hearing that it needs to be over 10x the amount it currently is to make any real difference. The kinds of measures we need to save the planet are politically impossible. I got my degree in Environmental Studies 25 years ago and in my last year my overall conclusion was that we are screwed. There are not nearly enough people who care. The human environmental catastrophe peaked decades ago.

Carbon remains in the atmosphere for 100 years.

No one even talks about methane which is a greenhouse gas 100x more potent than carbon. Why not? Because the agricultural industry emits it. It is political suicide to attack farmers.

We are already over the cliff. What we are experiencing now is the wind whistling in our ears as we approach the rocks below. I'm a dad of two kids. I honestly just try to block out what their future will be like.
