Increasing the tax is good because it way better for our economy and for our planet. "Such a tax would generate about $88 billion in 2012, rising to $144 billion by 2020, the report said, slashing U.S. debt by between 12 and 50 percent within a decade, depending on how high the deficit climbs...," (Economic arguments for and against a carbon tax Jason Welker 2016). Therefore, I believe it is good w tax it then there would be more money in American and less pollution.
Tax increase is not a good idea because "tax on CO2 emissions is that it would drive up the costs of energy production, leading to higher energy costs for the nation’s households and firms. This boost in prices would increase costs to producers of all other goods and services in the economy, effectively reducing the supply in several key sectors of the US economy, leading to falling national output" (Jason welker 2016) it would drive all prices up and slow down production.
I believe that it's good to have an increase is good on the planet and it would bring our economy so much money. Our diet would start to go down and there would be positive changes in the economy. Also taxing pollution would help,people stay more green and we'd have better air.
