China could again outdo US on CO2 fight

Beijing says it’s working on an environmental tax:
“Several departments are currently working together to develop research on this issue, and when the conditions are right we will launch an environmental taxation system for polluting companies,” Zhang Lijun, deputy head of the Environmental Protection Ministry, told reporters.

What President Obama, Reps. Markey and Waxman, and anybody else in government refuses to consider, while bashing China on global warming, is being considered by China.
