One of Cameron's key arguments is that the U.S. needs to put a fair price on carbon:
$20 a gallon? Wow. We all believe gas prices will have to be higher if the American public is ever to embrace smaller cars, and $20 would definitely do it, but heck, even Bob Lutz thinks they only need to go to $4 to change American buying habits. We're really interested in hearing what else Cameron has to say. If you want to check out the show, it airs on CNN International tonight. Check local listings.Nothing is going to change until we properly price carbon. Right now gas is $3 a gallon at the pump. In my perspective, gas is $15 or $20 a gallon if you fully burden it with the cost of all of these big military actions, the overall consequences to the economy and the long term costs of climate change.
