There are a lot of wacky schemes around for forcing people to stop using carbon-based energy, even though fire is still the basis for human civilization.
President Obama’s global warming plan would cost America’s poorest families billions.
With several options available to support the nation’s highways, Congress needs to create, innovate, and unify in fixing problems—like the HTF—and show America that they can do it without raising taxes.
Global warming as policy is enriching the few at the expense of the many -- and doing nothing to improve the environment or lower global temperatures. So CFACT advisor Dr. Larry Bell suggests we find a way to tax those who are profiting from this distortion of science.
Climate alarmists are trying to sucker, snooker, and stampede us into taking “immediate action” on job- and economy-strangling taxes and restrictions, before more people catch on to what’s really happening. This protection racket is one more example of passing a law, so that we can find out what’s in it. We simply cannot afford to let science continue being coopted to serve anti-hydrocarbon political agendas.
President Obama believes we need to tax carbon dioxide emissions to stop catastrophic global warming. Paul Driessen, senior policy advisor for CFACT, disagrees.
Suing Uncle Sam can often be a difficult and costly endeavor – difficult, that is, unless you happen to be an environmental policy organization staffed with a large number of lawyers.
If you want to know what a carbon tax on emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) would do to America you need only look at the destruction of industry and business in Australia, along with the soaring costs for energy use it imposes on anyone there.
Proponents of a proposed carbon tax claim it would be revenue neutral, but Ph.D. economist David Kreutzer of the Heritage Foundation disagrees...
Those concerned about global warming have recently been pushing the idea of a new tax on carbon emissions. But according to a recent study by the Heritage Foundation, such a carbon tax would cause serious economic harm without even making a dent in global emissions.
In Doha, Qatar late Saturday delegates attending the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change took concrete steps toward a new global treaty to address global warming that will transform the economic structure of the world with a new global tax. To be completed by 2015, the UN expects every nation to implement it by 2020, even though the globe has not warmed for the past 16 years.
By Appeal-Democrat Editorial Marysville, California. It's probably no coincidence that Gov. Jerry Brown recently launched a website to scare Californians into embracing his global-warming hype.... The state is about to launch a cap-and-trade scheme ... ostensibly to fight global warming.... If Brown were more honest, he would acknowledge that his intention isn't to curb global warming, which we and many scientists maintain is a highly disputable threat. If he were straightforward, Brown would explain to Californians that his cap-and-trade penalties on large industrial emitters of greenhouse gases are nothing but a disguised tax to raise billions to finance already overblown government operations.
