A state bill produced by Brown student Solomon Goldstein-Rose and J. Timmons Roberts, professor of environmental studies and sociology, proposes a carbon tax on all fossil fuels that enter Rhode Island. The tax would feed into a state-run fund that would help finance solar and wind projects, green-energy research and transportation initiatives.
