Flag Sustainability Commission Votes 4-3 To Support Carbon Tax

By Elisha Dorfsmith

The Flagstaff Sustainability Commission voted 4-3 at their January 28th meeting to support a resolution presented by the Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporting a carbon tax. The Flagstaff City Council will be voting on this resolution next week.

The Citizens’ Climate Lobby created a seven page document just for me to try to convince me that this carbon tax is a libertarian, free market proposal. You can read that document here:

As you probably guessed, I was not convinced and was one of the three NO votes.

    Let’s start by making it voluntary and see how many people volunteer to pay more taxes.
