Green Quiz: Carbon Tax

From towns like Brookline,
Massachusetts to multi-country regions like the European Union, people around
the world are experimenting with different policies to fight the pollution that
causes global warming.

In the US, talk has recently turned to a carbon tax, a policy of
putting the societal costs of burning fossil fuels into their market price.
It’s not a new idea though. Do
you know which country was the first to introduce a carbon tax in 1990?

A. Finland
B. South Korea
C. Mexico
D. Norway

The correct answer is A. Finland. Congrats to our green quiz winners, Michael Dorn, Shari Durand and Carol Edwards Dunn!
