We need to move forward and implement cleaner technologies. More Recycling. More Conservation.

What we don't need is governments who think we can tax our way out of the problem.

Carbon Pricing needs to be pretty steep to stop people from actually travelling to a work place. And what if Carbon Pricing was so high that people stopped travelling to parts of the world that rely on tourism?

The Federal Carbon Pricing plan does very little to curb emissions. People just absorb the costs and continue with life as normal.

Actually the stats show that the BC carbon tax (first in Canada) that has been in place a decade has reduced emissions between 5-15% depending on the area of the province, and been revenue neutral. People still go to work but many are taking public transit where it's available, and where it's not they drive more efficiently such as making one trip work to get things done when they used to make three. 
Also, EV's are flying off the shelves here as fast as the manufacturers can keep up.
