Carbon Tax

And now the Federal government of Canada

propose that it can reduce the effects of climate change

simply by increasing the revenues from a tax on carbon.

The provinces made a loud outcry, of course,

since this will  just fad the coffers of the treasury.

This is unconstitutional, cries the provinces in the law courts,

adding that the provinces should decide on this.

This is to solve a national problem, declares the government,

and therefore this is a federal solution.

A compromise may come, however, if the provinces will agree on

that the federal government may declare a tax on carbon emissions

if the provinces may keep all the tax that is generated.

Come to think of it,

if fossilized fuel  causes the global warming,

and considering the recent cold attacks of the weather,

it may be better to use more fossilized fuel

to better fight the cold!
