Duke Energy CEO: We Need A Carbon Tax

[WorldChanging.com]: It's almost enough to cause a double-take: the CEO and Chairman of Duke Energy announced that the firm will lobby for the introduction of a carbon tax in order to reduce fossil fuel use and address global warming.

'Personally, I feel the time has come to act - to take steps as a nation to reduce the carbon intensity of our economy....'

Interesting times ahead, as traditional alliances shift (conservative
Republicans moving toward renewable energy out of national security
concerns), as different industries stake out different strategic
positions on the landscape (think reinsurance vs petroleum), and as
monolithic industries split (think BP and Shell) over very different
perceptions of where viable futures lie.
