Cap and trade is a tough issue, with people decidedly on one side or the other. That’s as far as most people get. I attended a meeting earlier this month where two sides agreed to disagree on that very issue. That, in itself, isn’t necessarily remarkable, but there are many who can’t seem to do this. We get so caught up in our own perspective, sometimes seeming to embrace opposition. Remarkable was that these people, representing groups with a fundamental disagreement on the implementation of a carbon tax, could set that aside. Moving forward, they looked to see where they could agree. The effort to reduce carbon emissions deserves that kind of attention and exploration.
