Eugene, welcome to the program. Nice to see you here, especially knowing that you don’t give interviews too often.
Good morning. Yes, I don’t like to give interviews, partially because my English is not very good, but today I have a reason and responsibility to go public. We just published the latest list of social viruses and one of them really dangerous. It is spreading very fast.
Social virus? What is it?
You know what a computer virus is. It is a piece of code which can get into your computer system and live there for some time. Mostly, what it does is copy itself to other systems, infecting as many computers as it can. When it has populated many computers it can start utilizing them for someone’s benefit. It can help break security systems, or simply send thousands meaningless messages to a target server causing a so called DoS attack.
Nadia, what is there?
It is the latest newspaper from America!
Ah, how nice! Sit here, honey, and read it to me. Tell me how our American comrades shovel pepper into those capitalist asses!
Carbon tax will start July 1, 2008 at a rate of $10 per tonne of associated carbon, or carbon‑equivalent, emissions. That works out to about 2.4 cents a litre at the gas pump and 2.8 cents a litre for diesel and home heating oil. Leading economists and scientists agree: Seeing that cost, and making it real, will give us new incentives to change the habits that created global warming in the first place.
Let me get this clear. Today we pay say, $1.20 per litre, and with the tax it will be $1.224 per litre? Am I correct?
Yes, for every litre of gas an additional 2.4 cents will be charged as the carbon tax.
And why do you think this is the right thing to do?
