Petition for a Carbon Tax

The idea of a carbon tax in the United States is a controversial issue. While popular political groups like the Tea Party oppose creating new taxes of any kind because they only support a sick governmental system, many think a more appropriately arranged tax structure would help cure the country's economic problems.

One such new tax could potentially be a carbon tax. Other countries with struggling economies such as Ireland, have adopted carbon taxes to both reduce the deficit and help change behavior (meaning, make people more green!) If a carbon tax is something you support, or something you'd like to learn more about, I highly suggest taking a look at this petition.
