    They´ll come back. Nations will return to massive punitive carbon tarriffs against anyone not cutting down on carbon usage once climate change really gets going. This will not be left to the "individual consumer choices". This will devolve into economic warfare. The free trade bubble we live in at current, is not going to last.

      How does this tariff work? How does it charge countries per capita? The larger the exporter's population, the higher the tariff its imports to the US? That doesn't make sense.
