What’s an Emission Tax?

 

An emission tax is a tax on emissions created through industrial and commercial processes such as coal fueled electricity generation and fossil fuel burning for transportation.

It is a consumptive tax, meaning that it can be avoided and minimized.

An emissions tax is meant to discourage the use of “dirty” products and services and fund the capture of emissions and reclamation of environments. It promotes the conservation of natural resources such as coal, oil, trees, water, air and wild life.

See the full plan here. It also includes a reduction of income taxes, and funding of renewable research, healthcare and even fund social security.

Wait! It’s Not a Carbon Tax?

No, an Emissions Tax is Not a Carbon Tax. It is so much more. It was created by Founder Robert Tanguay after many years of thought, fueled by the disgust for the Elite and Special Interests proposals (Carbon Tax/ Carbon Dividend, Cap and Trade, Fees etc) that benefit their groups at the expense of the environment, small businesses and working class people.
