Who will pay for carbon tax?

In a rare burst of clarity in a report otherwise loaded with "green" bafflegab, the economic study the David Suzuki Foundation released last week to bolster its case for a $100 per tonne carbon tax accurately explained the motivation behind all these government mandated, central planning programs.

To wit, all involve: "(P)assing the cost of carbon on down through the supply chain and on to industry and eventually consumers. This is the raison d'etre of a carbon price ..." Exactly.
Or, as Lorrie Goldstein puts it, when they tell you "polluters will pay" to reduce greenhouse gases, they mean you and me.
