Surely if carbon dioxide is a pollutant and trees breath it out we just chop down all the trees so they can’t “pollute” our precious air. Seems very much like some dodgy science.

Trees don't breathe out carbon dioxide lol.

Australia had a carbon tax that was just outright known as "the carbon tax" under the Julia Gillard Labor government. The conservative party (The Liberals - I know this is confusing for people outside of Australia) hounded it as a bad policy that would increase people's electricity prices for their homes. It had minimal impact on that (and actually coincided with major infrastructure upgrades, the cost of which was passed onto consumers) and actually caused emissions to decline. When Tony Abbott came into power in 2013 he made a huge point that one of his crowning achievements was to remove the carbon tax. Since then emissions continue to rise every year. The idea of revisiting this would be dangerous for political success and so the issue of how to decrease emissions in a country that is so deeply connected to coal mining and exports (we are one of the biggest exporters of coal in the world and therefore responsible for a huge amount of emissions) still remains a difficult to answer one, with little to no progress made on it in the past 7 years on a federal level. State governments on the other hand have been transitioning towards renewable energy for powering homes as it is a cheaper alternative to coal. It's unlikely, despite the success of it years ago and its success in other countries, that Australia will revive its carbon tax policies for many years - or maybe even many governments - to come.

Maybe I misunderstand the details, but my only problem with carbon taxes is that lower income people should not bare the burden of fixing what irresponsible corporations have done to our planet. Some people are just trying to get by and have enough gas in their car to get them to and from work for the week. Making survival more expensive for these groups is not ethical and won't change buying habits because some people just don't have other options. I have been there...and when my car was on E and I had to get my kid to school I needed to be able to afford the gas at that time, not get the money back at tax time.

Scientifically, carbon pollution is near zero (going to make a little allowance for coal dust blowing off piles of coal). When will the lay people get that carbon and carbon dioxide are 2 completely different things?
And I do find it odd to put a price on CO2 and call it pollution. We exhale CO2 - are we polluting??? And there is an awful lot of gases out there which have no price on them... What about steam? The chemical gas underlying that (H2O) makes up a massive 96% of greenhouse gases!!! Not 0.42% but 96% of greenhouse gas! Surely there should be a movement out there to put a tax on steam!!!

I would have thought libertarian types would love Green Energy - decentralised grids and self sufficiency. Saves money, removes reliance on corporations and public services. Higher building standards are necessary with weather changes anyway. You have desert, rivers and coastal wind to harness plenty of energy.

Technically the carbon was captured until Mr Nye released it into the atmosphere with a Mentos tablet.
Also should talk show host who speak for 30 minutes, thereby releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, pay a higher carbon bill than the rest of us who are just breathing normally?
