No matter what we do our emissions will become a drop in the bucket compared to China and India in a very short period of time.
Charging our own industry while watching theirs operate outside of our standards with impunity only furthers their interest and harms ours.
Ironic thing is our production technology is generally much cleaner than theirs. Any incentive we give to further push industrial production to Asia hurts more than it helps.
When it comes to livelihoods and jobs you have to be at least somewhat pragmatic about this stuff. Utopia doesn't exist, and global CO2 emissions aren't going to decline by order of federal legislation.
