    Environmentalists see carbon tax in Obama's second term...

    Obama backers put carbon tax and other global warming efforts atop re-election agenda
    Thursday, November 1, 2012 - While even he admits disappointment in his first-term record on the fight against climate change, President Obama continues to enjoy strong support from environmentalists who say they are confident he can deliver a carbon tax and other far-reaching measures against global warming in a second term.
    New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg provided the most recent evidence of that Thursday, announcing his endorsement of Mr. Obama’s re-election bid in large part because he is “a president to lead on climate change.” “This issue is too important. We need determined leadership at the national level to move the nation and the world forward,” Mr. Bloomberg, an independent, said, while questioning whether superstorm Sandy, which ravaged his city this week may have been the result of global warming. “The risk that it might be — given this week’s devastation — should compel all elected leaders to take immediate action.”

    Mr. Obama has also received endorsements from the Sierra Club and other environmental groups, maintaining much of the support he cultivated during his first White House run four years ago. That support has held steady despite several high-profile failures and major setbacks, including the failure to get a cap-and-trade greenhouse gas bill through the Democrat-dominated Congress of his first two years in office.

    After promising to lead the world in the fight against climate change, Mr. Obama was unable to reach a deal with other world leaders at a much-touted global summit on climate change in Copenhagen in 2009. He was able only to cobble together a general “statement of principles.” Perhaps because of those setbacks, Mr. Obama has allowed climate change to be largely absent from the presidential campaign, though other factors have also played a role.

    A struggling economy has overshadowed the issue throughout the president’s first term, and that reality has extended to the contest between Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney. In a recent interview with MTV, the president flatly admitted he hasn’t made as much progress as he had hoped, and also conceded the issue hasn’t made it into the spotlight of the campaign. “We’re not moving as fast as we need to,” Mr. Obama said. “I’m surprised [climate change] didn’t come up in one of the debates.”

    Eco-Taxes? Study Financed by U.S. Treasury Will Link Tax Code to Carbon Emissions
    November 01, 2012 Coming soon: a green tax code for American businesses and individual taxpayers alike?
    A major tax study currently being sponsored by the U.S. Treasury will give environmental activists a powerful new weapon in their campaign to alter the entire American economic and social landscape in the name of halting “climate change”—including the possible levying of new carbon taxes.

    That campaign is bound to intensify in the aftermath of Nov. 6’s presidential election, regardless of who wins the race, as the nation faces the challenge of deficit reduction and tax reform that will be required to overhaul the country’s over-strained finances. Environmental advocates and others are likely to raise such innovative mechanisms as carbon taxes and major shifts in tax rates and incentives as part of the process—and the impending study may well provide them with important ammunition.

    Under the bland title of Effects of Provisions in the Internal Revenue Code on Greenhouse Gas Emissions, the $1.5 million study is being carried out under the auspices of the National Academy of Science (NAS). Originally planned to take two years, the ambitious project aims to take an inventory of the U.S. tax code in terms of the effects of its most important provisions on the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions—a huge and complicated exercise in environmental and economic modelling.

    The study itself will not be available until after the election. Originally slated for completion in September of this year, its publication has since been postponed until the first quarter of next year.
