Voluntary Income Tax, Voluntary Speed Limits
MetadataShow full item record
The US administration insists that any plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions be voluntary and devised by individual countries rather than a worldwide agreement or treaty. Other countries, especially European countries, consider voluntary measures ineffective. They argue if efforts to curb climate change should be voluntary then why not have a voluntary income tax in the US or voluntary speed limits? Voluntary efforts cannot end global climate change, the energy crisis or the exponential growth of the population.
