Letter: Conservatives back free-market plan to address climate change
Placeholder Image

A friend forwarded Tom Crawford’s Nov. 4 column on the failure of our politicians to address climate change. The early signs (sea level rise at Tybee, floods, drought, melting glaciers, changes in growing season) are all around us.

Not only that, but conservatives have a free-market solution, proposed by former Rep. Bob Inglis, to put a fee on carbon, then return the monies collected to households so it wouldn’t expand the government.

President Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of State, George Shultz, has loaned his name to it, called the Shultz-Becker Plan. Instead, our politicians stand in the way. Well, remember, mother nature always bats last — and owns the stadium.
