Climate change solutions are indeed difficult to sort out. David Folland wants us to "lobby Congress to put a fee on carbon and return the proceeds to the American people" ("The climate change solution debate," Readers' Forum, Aug. 24). Say what?
Take the money, filter it through the hands of schemers and bureaucrats, and then return what's left of it to those who ultimately paid it in the first place? That's hard won incentive to reduce carbon use. There are important reasons why four of the five national legislators from our state think the carbon tax is not such a good idea.
And by the way, there are still not-yet-quantified forces affecting the complicated climate of earth that are part of the equation. Hopefully, we can do our part in reducing pollutions and retaining a hospitable home.
