To mitigate climate change I would also subsidize and encourage:
- renewable energy production and research. Two local examples of what I would like to see are OIT’s energy self-reliant campus and Lakeview’s use of solar and geothermal power; and
- the purchase of electric/high mpg (i.e. >55 mpg) motor vehicles.
- a carbon tax.
With such overwhelming proof of climate change, we must wean ourselves off fossil fuels now!
