How do we get them to stop bribing politicians who thus refuse to implement GHG-fees?
Give them money!
Yes, it sounds crazy, but here's how to make it work:
- All (domestic) emissions of GHGs attract a fee of F$.
- Divide R(evenue) = Q(antity) * F(ee) into two buckets, in proportion to p(percent)
- One bucket is distributed to citizens evenly.
- The other bucket is distributed to GHG-producers in proportion to their share of average, 2012-14 GHG emissions.
Bottom Line: A direct bribe to help the public is better than hidden brides that harm everyone.
