Some subscribers to Math-Learn might be interested in a recent post
"Would a Carbon Tax Save Life on Planet Earth?" [Hake (2013)]. The
abstract reads:

ABSTRACT: James Hansen, former head of the NASA Goddard Institute for
Space Studies, in "The Courage to Fight Climate Change" at
<http://bit.ly/12djtSf> wrote: "We must have a simple, honest,
across-the-board carbon fee collected from the fossil fuel companies
at the small number of domestic mines and ports of entry. All of that
money should be distributed to the public-100 percent of it-with
equal amounts going to all legal residents."

A Google <http://www.google.com/> search for "Carbon Tax" turned up
4,210,000 hits at <http://bit.ly/153PQQV> on 03 June 10:30-0700,
including the Wikipedi entries on "Carbon Tax" at
<http://bit.ly/118dUBp> and on "Emissions Control" at
<http://bit.ly/15tshjV>. In my opinion: (a) The *more* important hits
are listed in the over twenty references in the REFERENCE list in the
complete post at <http://yhoo.it/16ECfUn>, and (b) the *most*
important hits are these six:

(1) "The Courage to Fight Climate Change" [Hansen & Romm (2013)] at

(2) "The People vs. Cap-and-Trade" [Hansen (2010b)] at <http://bit.ly/17OhN3w>,

(3) "The American Party" [Hansen (2013)] at <http://huff.to/13gcjcR>,

(4) "Herman Daly on Carbon Fees and Tax Shifting" [Gravitas (2011)]
at <http://bit.ly/1aTHNH3>,

(5) "Sanders, Boxer Propose Climate Change Bills" [Sanders (2013a)]
at <http://1.usa.gov/12oSeUT>,

(6) "Effects of a Carbon Tax on the Economy and the Environment" [CBO
(2013)] at <http://1.usa.gov/13y4MF6>.
