Opinion: It's not smart to put the economy ahead of protecting climate

Posted on December 1, 2014 |
By Heidi Willis



In the guest editorial in the Nov. 24 edition of this paper, Emerson Lynn scoffs at the recent launch of an effort to introduce a carbon tax. The tax, he says, will stunt economic growth and affirm Vermont as an expensive place to live. He does acknowledge that a carbon tax would be an effective way to reduce fossil fuel use and address climate change. But economic growth and job creation is more important than addressing climate change, in his view.

MIDDLEBURY — Addison County’s 23 towns bore the brunt of a Thanksgiving Eve snowstorm that blanketed Vermont and much of the Northeast on the busiest travel day of the year.

“That was the jackpot area,” said NWS meteorologist Andrew Loconto. “There was a pretty good snowband which dropped some good amounts across the county.”
