In a recent Olympian guest column, the writers disputed the Initiative 732 campaign sponsored by Carbon Washington. This initiative to the Legislature would tax fossil fuels with the proceeds lowering the sales tax by 1 percent, remove the business and occupations tax from Washington manufacturers, and fund the working families tax rebate.
It is an elegant, simple, and effective effort to reduce carbon in the atmosphere. It is working very well in British Columbia. There will be no solution to climate change that is perfect. It will take many efforts on all our parts. However, this is a great start. Make sure that you sign on to this initiative!
