In an alternative take on Rep. John Dingell’s carbon tax proposal, David Roberts suggests that the congressman’s intentions aren’t as malign as many environmentalists have taken them to be. Roberts sees a lot to like in the specifics of the bill, along with a fairly blunt message to those who have been talking a big game on climate change:
Put up or shut up. If you’re going to push me on this bill, I’ll give you what you want. It’s up to you now to run with it. Good luck.
So if you actually do favor this sort of legislation, now would be a good time to let your representative know.
