Topic: AGREE OR DISAGREE: A national carbon tax is an inappropriate mechanism by which governments can meet NDCs.


NDC: Recall NDC is Nationally Determined Contribution set at the Paris Agreement (COP 21). NDC is the amount of effort put in by a country to reduce its national emissions, and adapt to the impact of climate change.



Crazy idea:

Verdict: it’s no a yes/no answer. While it might push us in meeting NDC, it takes a toll in every other aspect of Canadians, especially those who don’t live in year-round nice weather seasons like Vancouver.
