carbon tax is good
absurdist leaps of logic
When I wrote about innovation that might be inspired by reading some computer-generated clean energy haiku, I meant not only revolutionary new discoveries and inventions, but refinements to existing technology and processes that will be necessary to tide us over the many years that it will take to achieve the carbon-neutral civilization we need.
The computer that will be generating the clean energy haiku may include economic concepts like carbon tax, as in this example, in its repertoire. But it will never suggest ‘cap + trade’ (aka ‘smoke + mirrors’).
