    Hi Aspirant,

    Simply carbon tax is taken by the government from the industries in lie of release the CO2 and other carbon wastage which polluted the environment and water.

    Carbon dioxide is one of several heat-trapping greenhouse gases emitted by humans.

    The scientific consensus is that human-induced greenhouse gas emissions are the primary cause of global warming, and that carbon dioxide is the most important of the anthropogenic.

    Worldwide, 27 billion tones of carbon dioxide are produced by human activity annually.

    The physical effect of CO2 in the atmosphere can be measured as a change in the Earth-atmosphere system's energy balance – the radioactive forcing of CO2.

    Carbon taxes are one of the policies available to governments to reduce Carbon emissions.

    Several countries of the world are implementing carbon taxes.

    Japan and Norway is one of them who implements the carbon taxes in their country and try to reduce carbon emission.

    Best of Luck…
