About "Carbon Tax"
The Affirmative plan imposes a tax on all fuels that combust carbon, to raise the price and discourage such pollution of the atmosphere and its consequent impacts (especially climate change). The inherency, significance, and solvency arguments show that the advantages of a carbon tax are minimal, and they simply do not outweigh the major disadvantages to citizens, low-income households, and American economy. This is especially potent when you impact directly to the judge as an individual person. Ask them which they would rather have: the vague promise that global temperatures will be a few degrees cooler in 50 years, or a stable economy and lower prices on essential goods? Both you and affirmative team want to do what’s best for America – your side just happens to be a better way to achieve that goal.
