You don’t have to be a climate scientist to notice that the frequency, intensity and resulting cost of extreme weather events have increased in recent years. While taking steps to address climate change does bear some costs, consider the astronomical costs of dealing with continuing increases in extreme drought, superstorms, wildfires and floods. A market-based, revenue-neutral carbon tax that returns all proceeds to households would effect the needed reductions in emissions and move us to a clean-energy economy with minimum disruption.
