Yes, even oil companies want to be taxed for their carbon emissions – and the money goes in YOUR pocket!

“When governments are considering policy options, ExxonMobil advocates an approach that ensures a uniform and predictable cost of carbon; allows market prices to drive solutions; maximizes transparency to stakeholders; reduces administrative complexity; promotes global participation; and is easily adjusted to future developments in climate science and policy impacts. We continue to believe a revenue-neutral carbon tax is better able to accommodate these key criteria than alternatives such as cap-and-trade.”

  1. Hi Eve,
    What a great quote! Where is it from. Is this an actual Exxon PR? I’d like to Tweet it if there’s a reference.
    Thanks,
    George
