Bestselling author and former vice president Al Gore is reportedly hard at work on a follow-up to the ink-and-paper version An Inconvenient Truth. The new book, slated for release next Earth Day (April 22), is to be called The Path to Survival and will focus on solutions to the problem of global warming, including, most likely, the implementation of a carbon tax. Gore recently told an interviewer from the hoity-toity 02138 (the magazine for Harvard sensibilities!), "I’m convinced that we should eliminate the payroll tax and replace it dollar for dollar with a CO2 tax." Question is: How do we get there?
