Greener Than Thou: Gav's Carbon Tax is Back

Gavin's back in high gear on the green front: The city's Chamber of Commerce has gotten behind Mayor Newsom's proposition to levy so-called "carbon taxes" on all San Francisco businesses to compensate for the level of greenhouse emissions spewed by their buildings. While Gav had stopped pushing for the bill's inclusion on the November ballot, a revised proposal will allow for an adjustment of the tax rate according to how much carbon businesses actually emit. Fun with Logic. [City Insider]
