Title: Carbon Tax?

Is this just a way of taxing the air we breath without causing the riots?

A fuel tax is a carbon tax.
Coal and Natural Gas could be easily taxed too (and thus your electricity).

Taxing the fuel source would make it easier to direct the usage towards renewable fuels such as alcohol or biodiesel.
