In it, but not of it. TPM DC

Bob Corker, Climate Change Rebel?

I want to tell you that I wish we would just talk about a carbon tax, 100 percent of which would be returned to the American people. So there's no net dollars that would come out of the American people's pockets.

Gore, who has proposed a similarly broad carbon tax, agreed with Corker. The two men then heartily concurred on the need to auction off 100% of carbon allowances under a cap-and-trade system -- a plan that mirrors President Obama's.
