This is what I get for jumping the gun

A couple days ago I speculated that the BC government would not offset their new carbon tax with a new tax cut. They did. That being said, I don't think that this take will have an earth shattering effect. British Columbia has very clean electricity (hydro) and heating (natural gas). Therefore, most of the reduction will have to come out of transportation, and 7.24 cents a litre isn't going to get us there. If BC meets their stated fantasy goal of 33 percent carbon emissions reduction by 2020, it will be because of technologies that created outside of BC.
