Superstorm Sandy. Massive droughts. Devastating tornadoes. Horrific wildfires. The United States has certainly seen the dramatic weather-related effects of climate change in 2012, and every American has in some way been negatively impacted.

unfortunately, too many in the USA don't care about the cleanliness of the world or creating jobs...unfortunately, too many of these work in Washington DC........

A progressive tax on all animal products as well as a real education on the truth of the vegetarian organic diet vs the destructive animal-eating diet will do more for Earth Mother than all of these other carbon-focused efforts combined. Once people stop eating and using sentient beings, the natural order will be restored.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. A carbon tax is an excellent idea that must be pursued. I'm not so sure about the cap-and-trade issue...I've read articles stating that there are so many loopholes, that as companies trade, that device would lessen the value and we'd be back to square one with companies making money off polluting.

Those who create the problem should pay for its cleanup. Why should the government (i.e., the taxpayers) have to pay for the mess left behind by big energy and other large-scale corporate offenders? Maybe if the consequences of their actions hit them where it hurts them most, their profit margin, they'd "clean up" their act.

We need to make those that cause the problem pay, but we all know in the end, they will pass the cost to the consumer. That being said, we will all be much healthier if we reduce the carbon in the air.

The big polluters should be taxed.
