I think data bears out that CO2 is higher than ever in recent geological time (and that's a lot of years). I agree with Silicon_Smith partially, but actually think such taxes should include the complete strain the particular society/industry is putting on the planet. Also, I think we should be more respective of all our resources, not just energy-making ones, in my opinion. In regards to the articles predicting the state of 3D in display. It's been coming for decades. I actually believe wearable displays will be the future eventually. Very low energy, higher durability and lower cost. Take a look at Microvision, for example.

Hi Iniewski, I understand it correct, Chanj is anticipating that the ultra-dense displays for creating 3D images without glasses would consume more power than the normal 2D displays...and hence he is more carbon emission as people move to 3D.

If we provide the right financial incentives or penalties perhaps a law isn't actually needed.

to @chanj...somewhat dis-agree, there has been numerous serious studies that basically say that rate of progress is related to increase of energy consumption...if you lower energy consumption of one unit simply more people will use it (or one person will use multiple units)...electronics gear might be lower power but now I own several phones, laptops, TVs etc in my small household of two...agree on linking 3D and climate change, make no sense at all!

Do we need a carbon cap and trade law?

The propaganda says that there is not a climate problem and in any case is not cause by human civilization. Thatīs bullshit. The world population is not the problem bbubtb but not sharing the resursers. Abaut the oil. Think that the oil has been capture bby the nuture below the soil for thaousands of years. Now the civilization forcing peak it up and the effect of that on the climate can you read in any place: google :O((

I heard that the global warming going on isn't very much caused by the human. If we study the earth's history we can see that we are going out from an Ice-age and that is why we are seeing overall temperature increase.

I would say, though economic advancement has been an exchange for natural resources, there is always a way of not putting pressure on the environment and still get away with it. The need is, of course for a focussed research and implementation. Governments worldwide have started pushing the capitalists with ETS(Emissions trading schemes), taxes on carbon essentially, which is the right way to spur climate control.

How about "Taxes on the Cheats" instead??
