Thank This Inanimate Carbon Rod Tax!

Surprising as it may be, it sounds like the Republicans may be considering proposing a carbon tax, with former Bush speechwriter David Frum echoing former head of the President's Economic Advisors Greg Mankiw by suggesting that the time may have come to establish a tax on carbon dioxide emissions. I'm not a fan of new taxes, but I for one welcome our new eco-overlords. Especially if this can be used to reduce income taxes (but that's probably a wish coming from cloud cuckoo land).

Title reference here. I score bonus points for TWO Simpsons references from the same episode.

Carbon seems to be in the news a lot these days.
