Green Shift vs. Black Shift

So, the Liberal party is proposing higher taxes on carbon offset by lower taxes on income, with what they are calling the Green Shift. Meanwhile, the Conservative party is proposing lower taxes on carbon, offset by higher taxes for future taxpayers (who will pay interest on the debt not paid off due to the tax cut on oil).

It seems like a pretty clear choice to me, but no doubt the Conservative plan will play well with people who want what is easy now and who don't worry about the future.
