After reading the horrific reality about climate change, I think it is important to start taking drastic measures on finding a solution to mitigate the effects of C02 emission. In the article Major-Climate-Report-Describes-a-Stong-Risk-of-Crisis-as-Early-as-2040, it is stated that “A price on carbon is central to prompt mitigation,”…It estimates that to be effective, such a price would have to range from $135 to $5,500 per ton of carbon dioxide pollution in 2030, and from $690 to $27,000 per ton by 2100. That means if we start taxing C02, there would be and increase of gas and electric rates. Although those rates sound unreasonable, it is one of the quickest solutions to motivate people to preserve energy and gas. With incorporating tax, people will start finding other solutions for creating energy. I believe if there was a carbon tax, we could mitigate the effects of C02 by 2040.
It is just an opinion to state that climate science is just in its infancy and too young to be reliable. I don’t believe this statement after reading “The Strange Deaths, Varied Lives, and Ultimate Resurrection of John Tyndall” because of the research he had down during his life in the Victorian age. John Tyndall stated that any changes to the atmosphere “would create great effects on the terrestrial rays and produce corresponding changes to the atmosphere”(John Tyndall). Because of his research, it is clear the science of climate science has been around long enough to not be a brand new concept. Not only do we have Tyndall’s evidence, we also have the IPPC’s work that corresponds with Tyndall’s discovery.
