Removing hidden subsidies and imposing a fee on carbon, Musk told audience members at public research school Pantheon-Sorbonne University in Paris, France, will hasten the switch from fossil fuels to greener energy sources. Musk said; ” “So how do we accelerate this transition away from fossil fuels to the sustainable era? We need to have a carbon tax. To make it sort of something which is neither a left or a right issue, we should make it a revenue-neutral carbon tax. This would be a case of increasing taxes on carbon but then we’re reducing taxes in other places.” To see the full speech look at the link below.
