Thanks to Ethan Stewart for his moving description of the Paris talks through his observant eyes. As the article says, while he viewed terrorism interlaced with hope, the treaty has no language for carbon valuation, which means there is no price on carbon emissions. We need to set a firm price, even in California, that increases annually. The funds collected should be returned to households to offset the increased cost of fossil fuels. If we can achieve this, we will transform hope into significant progress.
