We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Semi-Finalists and finalists, and even volunteer to join one those teams if you have relevant expertise.

Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

Further information:
This is a very realistic and clear proposal. Proposal is essentially focused on revenue recycling. It would benefit from offering some more evidence of why allocation levels are set as they are - why more to business than to R&D? Why a direct refund to citizens? There is no real discussion of how to get governments to agree - in fact, political assessment is more a polemic than a proposal

Even so, the impact, as for all carbon tax proposals, could be large. However, the proposal would benefit from elaborating on how impact could be increased through the revenue allocation schema.
