French industry fears resurgence of carbon tax

Prime Minister Last week French businesses were saved from the carbon tax thanks to the courts shutting the law down because too many special favors were passed out to businesses.  Now the government officials are rallying to pass an amended version of the carbon tax but are worried it could decimate the ability for French businesses to remain competitive.

This same conundrum kept countries from signing the Copenhagen accord. The correlation between prosperity and energy are inheritly linked.  Governments should have no hand in deciding who can be the "haves" and the "have nots" where energy usage is concerned. 

Yet the French Prime Minister wants to limit carbon emissions while keeping french jobs competitive.  You cannot have both with a carbon tax.  If the new tax is passed, it will be at the expense of French prosperity.
