Mayor of Burlington backs carbon tax - WFFF

The mayor of the university town of Burlington announced his support for a statewide carbon tax. The tax will cut carbon emissions by 37% and “virtually” all the money will go back to the Vermonters who paid it - “virtually” meaning the State of Vermont and the renewable power industry will get a share, too.

"The announcement came as two towns, Norwich and Hartford, said they hope to increase awareness of climate change and encourage more people to take action by declaring climate emergencies."
