List at least two carbon-intensive products.

The government of Canada has recently imposed a carbon price
policy. Imposing the carbon price policy aims to reduce the consumption of carbon
intensive products. By imposing this policy, the Government of Canada hopes that
consumers will change their behaviour of consuming energy (i.e. consuming less).
Requirements for the project: please watch the video, read the news article, read
all the comments and discussions in the comment section in the article and then
answer the following questions.
1. summarize the article in your language and list the main ideas the
article is discussing.
2. summarize the comments, discussions and different arguments in
the comment section and provide your insights and argument about the
potential effect of the carbon price (i.e. the likely that it would change
consumer behaviour or not? Or it would just increase the government
revenue from taxes without any effects on consumer behaviours?). You
need to support the position (argument) that you will take by using what we
have studied in this course.
3. use the concepts and graphs we have studied in this course to
explain the followings:
a. List at least two carbon-intensive products.
b. The price elasticity of demand of carbon-intensive products that you
will have listed in point (a), and whether or not consumers would
change their consumption behaviours because of the price elasticity
of demand.
c. Can the decision of the Canadian government be classified under the
concept of price control (ceiling or floor)?
d. What effects the government decision could have on the surplus or
shortages of carbon intensive products, if any?
