Compliment

Feedback Sandwich Essentially this mode consists of burying any negative feedback (or criticisms) as the ďŹ ling of a sandwich with positive feedback (or compliments) as the buns. The idea was that you could soften the blow of any real criticism to the receiver by beginning and ending the feedback session with things they do well.

Equity Municipal Finance Revenues from carbon tax will be used to provide grants for low-income households, as well as to repair damages made by carbon emissions (Beck et al, 2015) Carbon tax expenditures are usually higher than the revenue, thus creating a hinder in the overall efficiency (Fischer et al, 2009) Local Economy In addition to advocating long term sustainability, carbon tax helps breed competition for more environmentally friendly energy creations (Anonymous, 2013) A carbon tax could result in a strain on industries that rely on fossil fuels and an initial increase of their goods and services (Pettinger, 2013)

social and government programs (Bohringer et al, 2016)

Increase in rate and prices paid by consumers for personal transportation, household heating, and goods and services requiring the use of carbon in production (Melton et al, 2016) Environment Promotes the reduction of fossil fuel consumption, leading to lowered CO2 emissions, as it is internalizes a negative externality (Sauma et al 2015) For a significant effect on the reduction of GHGs, the carbon tax would have to be implemented nation-wide and uniformly (Mori, 2012) (Merritt-Thrasher, 2011) Development A carbon tax could support sustainable policy objectives which promote sustainable development (Higgins, 2013)

Case Stu die s

Ireland adopted a carbon tax in 2010 after economic distress, imposed on carbon emitting industries and resulting in 1.3 billion euros in revenue (Dellink et al, 2007). Accepted by all parties, subsidies were given to relieve stress on the lower classes, and carbon tax has helped decrease carbon emissions country wide (Rosenthal, 2012). For environmental reasons, Norway implemented a carbon tax in 1991 associated with both mainland and offshore carbon usage, leading to an economic loss a little larger than the world average (Bagnoli et al, 2008). Merritt-Thrasher (2011) suggested that ‘with a more uniform distribution of the tax burden, it is possible to accomplish larger reductions in greenhouse gas emissions at lower costs.� Ontario Liberal Leaders plan on implementing a cap and trade program as a form of carbon pricing to reach environmental targets. This is outlined in Ontario’s Climate Change Strategy (2016) and Green Energy Act (2009). For Ontario to begin regulating a carbon tax in municipalities, they would need legislation such as it is in British Columbia. British Columbia has a Carbon Tax Act (2008) which outlines specific regulations regarding its use.

Carbon tax has been proven to widen urban and rural gaps and reduce their living standards over time (Liang et al, 2011)

A carbon tax in the best public interest requires consideration for those with lower incomes and sends its revenues to programs that benefit the public. While it properly addresses environmental concerns, it must be economically viable for the affected population in order to be successful.

a public finance mechanism that prices the production and use of fossil fuels in hopes of reducing greenhouse gas emissions for the benefit of the environment
