As part of the fiscal year 2013 budget [PDF] released on Feb. 13, President Obama proposed to eliminate $40 billion in tax breaks for oil and gas producers over the next 10 years. Yesterday, theYale Project on Climate Change reiterated its recent finding that Americans of all political stripes oppose subsidies for “coal, oil, and natural gas companies.” They oppose these subsidies by 70 percent to 30 percent — better than two to one.” (Courtesy of Grist/Climate Progress)

"To reach a low-cost, low-carbon electricity system in the West, UC Berkeley energy researchers propose this combo of power sources as one possible solution. A carbon tax (placing CO2 at about $70/ton) could help the West reach a goal of 54 percent of 1990 emissions by 2030, according to their models. (Credit: UCB/James Nelson.)”
