So question. If we "Export" our product sans carbon tax to another country near the equator that doesn't have our level of carbon tax does that mean we are still contributing to global warming and actually not helping to fix this "problem"?

Pollution near equator has biggest impact on global ozone levels, study finds - Technology & Science - CBC News

Quote:

When it comes to air pollution, a new study has found countries close to the equator do more damage than their northern neighbours, even when those in the tropics produce fewer emissions.

The study, published today in the journal Nature Geoscience, looks specifically at global levels of ozone — a greenhouse gas and toxic air pollutant — which have increased worldwide over the last three decades.

"We wanted to ask the question how much of that change that's happened over the last three decades is due to the change in location of emissions versus the increase in total emissions globally," Jason West, who led the research at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, told CBC News. "So we separated out those two factors and we found that change in location was by far the most important."

The sun is the bread and butter of ozone.

There is a correlation between geomagnetic voids and ozone holes but I know nothing of geofizzikle types stuffs.
