Full Show Title: The Carbon-Nation: Politics & Policies and the New Global Crisis…Stemming the Crisis State by State

Guest: State Massachusetts Senator Michael Barrett, Co-Sponsor of the Massachusetts Carbon Tax Bill (similar to that proposed to our US Congress by US Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA).

Discussion focuses on fiscal policies necessary for a state and nation to be socially responsible about carbon pollutants entering the environment as a result of business, industry and daily living. In addition to responsibilities, policies and methodologies will be explored that can provide a cleaner environment with more responsible energy initiatives being put in place. Because of federal grid-lock, state-based discussions have evolved to address this ever increasing carbon pollutant issue. Also discussed are the successful implementations of such programs outside the US, and how British Columbia has not only reduced their carbon footprint, but managed to reimburse their citizens for doing so. This is one discussion that will certainly spawn many more on this interesting view of carbon mitigation.
