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.
There is no compelling evidence of a causal relationship given the fact that the 2008 down turn hit at the same time. Emissions have been rising in recent years and it is no longer revenue neutral.
