Candidate Review - The Environment - Mike Gravel

Mike Gravel is pretty basic on this issue; but honestly he doesn't have an extensive issues page anyway.
Senator Gravel believes that global climate change is a matter of national security and survivability of the planet. As President, he will act swiftly to reduce America's carbon footprint in the world by initiating legislation to tax carbon at the source and cap carbon emissions. he will also initiate a massive scientific effort, integrating the world's scientific and engineering community, to end energy dependence on oil and integrate the world's scientific community in this task.
Sounds nice; not sure if it would actually work. For one thing I'm not sure congress will go along with taxing carbon at the source, and they would kind of have to.
