I am tabling with Tom McSteen, but your presence would be most welcome. I
was hoping Andy might go because I suspect the crowd will skew toward the
younger end, but I haven't heard from him.

> Scott,
> Climate Access would like to invite you to this exciting live panel event
> in Vancouver, Canada on Thursday March 27 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
> Salons.
> *"The Carbon Tax Return - Lessons Learned From British Columbia's First
> Five Years of Taxing Emissions"*
> *Brought to you by Climate Access and Climate Desk Live in partnership
> with Bloomberg BNA*
> Five years ago, the Canadian province of British Columbia joined a small
> group of states and nations (still fewer than 20 overall) that have passed
> a carbon tax--setting a price on carbon and unleashing the power of the
> marketplace to reduce emissions. Today, the tax brings in $1 billion a year
> in revenue that is returned to British Columbia taxpayers and has realized
> more than 5% in emissions reductions while GDP in BC increased above the
> Canadian average.
> To delve into these questions, Climate Desk, Climate Access, and Bloomberg
> BNA are partnering to present "The Carbon Tax Return: Lessons Learned From
> British Columbia's First Five Years of Taxing Emissions." This
> distinguished panel, preceded by a cocktail reception, will take place on 
> *Thursday
> March 27 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Salons, with doors opening at
> 5:30p.m. PDT. *Limited seating is available, so reserve your seats in
