2016FallQ24Next I would like to ask for your views on a number of ideas that have been proposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stabilize the climate. Consider a policy to reduce greenhouse gases by taxing carbon based fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. Would you strongly support, somewhat support, somewhat oppose, or strongly oppose this type of system?carbontax

2014SpringQ22[Additional text for Sample B: Unlike other taxes, the main goal of a carbon fuels tax is not to raise money for the government. In fact, the government could return the revenue from this tax to the public as an income tax rebate. In this way, the tax could change peoples' behavior without changing the country's overall tax burden.] What if the carbon fuels tax were "revenue neutral", meaning that every dollar collected by the government would be returned to the public as an income tax rebate.

2014SpringQ23[EXTENDED INFORMATION FOR SAMPLE B ONLY: Another idea is to use the revenue from a carbon fuels tax to fund research and development for renewable energy programs. For example, this research might improve the efficiency of wind and solar power, which could reduce greenhouse gas emissions.] What if revenues from the tax were used to fund research and development for renewable energy programs?

2014SpringQ24[EXTENDED INFORMATION FOR SAMPLE B ONLY: Another idea is to use the revenue from a carbon fuels tax to reduce the federal deficit.
