I have put up an article at

I would like to find out if anyone else has reported on the same idea
as a way of funding green house gas reduction technologies. The
concept is that there is a surcharge on energy depending on how much
green house gases are produced in producing the energy. The surcharge
is distributed as rewards to consumers who consume less dirty energy.
Rewards can only be used for capital expenditure on other ways of
reducing green house gases.

The reason I want to find out is so that I can correspond with other
proponents of this idea (if there are any) and share our experience.
There is no answer at this time.

I read your article.  You refer to "carbon taxes":
"This can be done by converting carbon taxes into rewards "

Is this a tax that is currently be collected or a new tax that you are
proposing?  If it is currently being collected where do the funds go

I will do some looking for your answer as well!

So far have been unable to find anything that matches your idea.  The
most interesting article was this one, though I'm sure you are very
aware of this debate already.
