Harry McGee reminds us that as of today a carbon tax will be levied on selected home heating fuels. Transport fuels were carbon-taxed already, and the remaining home heating fuels (the ones that contribute most to climate change) will follow at an unspecified later date. There are no plans to tax greenhouse gas emissions other than carbon dioxide (e.g., by imposing a methane levy on beef consumption).
The report also gives voice to the opposition. If my predictions are correct, they will now discover that a carbon tax does not really hurt.
McGee also quotes a spokesman of Minister Gormley saying that other taxes were reduced. I had missed that.
