Our tailor-made digest collates the best articles from around the internet and delivers them to you in an easy-to-read daily email. The issue of carbon dioxide emissions is one that has vexed legislators, business executives and environmentalists for decades. How do you reduce greenhouse gasses while at the same time allowing businesses to compete, remain profitable, and pass on lower costs to consumers? For many countries, the answer is a carbon tax. Some US states have also introduced the tax, although it is not nationwide. When it is in place businesses have to pay a set priced based on the amount of carbon dioxide that they produce through the burning of fossil fuels. This cost is typically passed onto consumers. The issue of greenhouse gas emissions will be around for many years to come, and carbon taxes will remain a key part of the debate. This is why you need the latest carbon tax news. The Wiser daily digest gives you exactly that, directly to your inbox and sourced from the best information on the internet. Register today.
