"After two years of presenting himself on the world stage as a climate champion, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada has put his money where his mouth is. Mr. Trudeau has pledged that all of Canada will have a price on carbon dioxide pollution by 2019. Mr. Trudeau’s plan would impose a tax of about $15 per ton of carbon dioxide on industrial polluters, rising to about $38 by 2022. Most of the revenue would be returned to citizens in the form of rebates."
