Poll: Americans Favor a Carbon Tax That Goes to Clean-Energy Development

first_imgPoll: Americans Favor a Carbon Tax That Goes to Clean-Energy Development FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Phys.org:The majority of the U.S. public is in favor of a tax on fossil fuels, provided the money goes into clean energy and infrastructure, according to a new study.The Yale University study surveyed Americans’ willingness to pay a carbon tax, and their preferences on how any revenue should be spent. The results were published today in the journal Environmental Research Letters.The researchers carried out a nationally-representative survey of 1,226 American adults, aged 18 and over. The survey introduced the idea of a carbon tax to combat climate change, and then asked respondents how they would like to see the revenue used if such a tax were implemented. Respondents were given 10 different expenditure categories and asked to indicate whether they would support or oppose each one.Professor Kotchen said: “We found the greatest level of support – nearly 80 per cent – was for the revenue to be used in the development of clean energy, and for improvements to US infrastructure like roads and bridges.“With the average American household willing to pay a mean amount of around $177 a year in carbon tax on their energy bills, this equates to around $22 billion that could be spent on investments in clean energy and infrastructure, among other sectors as well.“Interestingly, our analysis indicates strong public support – more than 70 per cent – for using some portion of the carbon-tax revenue to compensate coal miners whose jobs may be affected by a reduction in the use of fossil fuels. By our calculations – based on the number of workers carrying out coal extraction – there would be enough revenue from this tax to compensate all coal miners with nearly US$146,000 upon passage of the tax.”The research found that the ‘willingness to pay’ of Americans was actually less than the proposed carbon tax price described in the influential “The Conservative Case for Carbon Dividends” report from the Climate Leadership Council’s report in Feb 2017.More: US public backs carbon tax, and spending revenue on renewableslast_img read more

Grateful for article recognizing teachers

first_imgSome of my daughter’s students, who’d never thought they could pursue higher education, went on to college, thanks to the encouragement that she and her fellow teachers gave to them.Some of those graduated from college and are now successful in their careers. They keep in touch with my daughter and her fellow teachers.I recall when my daughter was 4 years old and would set up her Cabbage Patch kids, classroom style, in her bedroom and would “teach” them. She’d often force her younger brother (also a graduate of Schenectady schools) to sit in her “classroom” as well. Little did I know that one day she’d earn three master’s degrees, stand in front of a classroom and inspire children to learn.Although my daughter’s not teaching now (She’s home with small children.), she’ll always be a teacher. Thank you again, Daily Gazette, for recognizing the special people who teach the children who are our future.Wanda FisherSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to online Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWords cannot adequately express my appreciation for the front-page piece you ran on Dec. 17 concerning the dedication of teachers and how much “the little things,” such as a note from a student, means to them.Although I’ve never been a classroom teacher, my daughter, who’s the product of the Schenectady school system, taught middle school for 15 years, most of those in the Boston public schools. The quotes from the teacher you interviewed could have come directly from my own daughter, whose students did not come from families who could purchase Christmas gifts for her. Instead, they wrote notes or drew pictures.last_img read more

Mourinho keeps quiet on Dyke plans

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho refused to be drawn into the debate over Football Association chairman Greg Dyke’s plans to boost home-grown players, insisting he is happy to do as he is told. “It’s a bit like Financial Fair Play. I don’t have to agree or disagree. I just have to work with the rules.” West Brom boss Tony Pulis was more inclined to agree with Wenger, stressing places should be handed out on merit alone. “If they’re not good enough they shouldn’t be in the squad. That’s my argument,” he said. “If you’re talking about stopping top foreign players coming into the country, that’s not the way. “Bringing the top players to play and work with the top players in England should aspire them to become better players themselves.” Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat agreed with the idea in principle but admitted to being somewhat confused by the situation, given the number of quality English players already doing well in the Premier League. “I was wondering when I saw that. It’s a good idea, but how many good young players has England at the moment? A lot, in my opinion, and they are all playing in the first team – Sterling, Kane, Barkley, I can go on,” he said. “I don’t know where the complaint is because they have still an excellent side.” Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger questioned the proposals on Thursday, but Mourinho said he will just adapt to whatever rules are put in place. “I don’t think. I just work with the rules that are presented to me. I have no power, my opinion is not important,” Mourinho said. “My opinion doesn’t change the decision. The decision power is not in my hands. I just have to work with it.” Only 36.8 per cent (81 out of 220) of Premier League starters in the last round of matches were eligible for England selection. It is figures like this that Dyke is keen to overhaul, but Wenger questioned whether quotas was the right way to go, saying: ”I believe we are in a top-level competition and you earn your right through the quality of your performance rather than your place of birth.” One reason for Mourinho’s more casual approach could be the fact Chelsea had 19 players on England youth duty during the international break, which was more than any other club. Given those statistics Chelsea would appear to be well placed if and when these further restrictions are imposed. “In this moment I need to work with eight English players in my squad and I do that. If one day somebody tells me it’s 10 or 12 or five or four, I adapt to the rules,” Mourinho added. Dyke wants to increase the minimum number of home-grown players in club squads from eight to 12, but he is facing opposition from the Premier League. The proposals also include changing the rules so that “home-grown” means having trained in England for three years before the age of 18 rather than before 21. Press Associationlast_img read more
