4. It doesn't have to be.

Gore said hes been pushing a carbon tax for decades. But his idea is not to use the money to lower the deficit, but to reduce payroll taxes in a revenue-neutral way.

We should tax what we burn, not what we earn, he said.

Environmental tax credits could be given to the poor allowing them to adapt to more efficient means of using energy.

As it is all of human society already pays a carbon tax, through increasing costs to the economy from catastrophic environmental disasters.
