Letter: Vermont needs to act on carbon emissions


To the Editor:

How puzzling that our governor is willing to support a tax on e-cigs of over 90 percent (as he should) to protect our young adults, but won't support a tax on carbon which impacts the health of ALL Vermonters, especially young children.

Please don't argue that Vermont's contribution to greenhouse gases is negligible -- ALL states and countries need to get on board here and Vermont (like British Columbia) can lead a nation. Please Governor Scott: heed the recommendations of the committee you appointed.

David Ellenbogen,
