Traditional Republicans Push A CARBON TAX!

The Reluctant GOP

A group of prominent Republicans , including former Secretary of State James Baker and other members of the new “Climate Leadership Council,” pitched a tax on carbon dioxide to top White House aides Wednesday, selling the plan as an economic win that could drive job growth and yield environmental dividends too.

“The signs were very encouraging,” Ted Halstead, who founded the council, said after the meeting. “Two weeks into this new administration, we have positioned our solution as the most promising climate solution — if they want to go there.”
