Carbon Taxes Are A Totally Non-Partisan Solution To ‘Climate Change’ (scam)

The editorial board of the Winston Salem Journal, which uses vast amounts of fossil fuels and energy to gather and distribute their news, thinks it has the solution, which solely blames Mankind for the slight increase in temperatures, missing the point that they first have to prove this using the Scientific Method, rather than talking points and Belief

Our view: A bipartisan approach to climate change is possible

Saturday marked the 30th anniversary of a seminal day in the history of our planet — the day NASA climate scientist James Hansen spoke to a Senate subcommittee about the dangers presented by global warming, stating that “the greenhouse effect has been detected and is changing our climate now.” His testimony was “the opening salvo of the age of climate change,” according to Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley.

Three decades later, Haonsen’s forecasts seem prescient. He projected that by 2017, the globe’s average temperature would be about 1.85 degrees higher than the 1950 to 1980 NASA-calculated average. The end of 2017 revealed a 1.48-degree rise in the 30-year average, The Associated Press reported recently.

Sorry, pretty much everything James predicted has failed, and, again, there’s still no proof this warm period is mostly/solely caused by man’s output of “carbon pollution.”

Another is the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a group composed mostly of volunteers who meet with legislators to promote a carbon fee and dividend plan. This plan would tax carbon-producing industries and apply the proceeds to create millions of jobs — 2.8 million within 20 years, according to their research — and increase the GDP by about $80 billion per year. The plan could also reduce carbon emissions by 50 percent within 20 years. This could reduce and perhaps even reverse the negative affects of climate change.

Red-state Utah, with an 83 percent Republican legislative majority, came close to passing a similar carbon tax bill in March that would assess a fee on carbon emissions, returning the net proceeds to taxpayers. It only failed because of time constraints in the legislative session. It did pass a resolution “recognizing a warming climate and asserting Utah’s responsibility for action to address it while promoting a growing economy,” according to the CCL.

Other Republicans who support taxing carbon pollution include former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, former Secretary of State George P. Shultz and Henry M. Paulson Jr., a former secretary of the Treasury. They call it “a conservative climate solution based on free-market principles.”

Nothing says “conservative” and “free market principles” like imposing government taxes, fees, and restrictions on private entities and the economy, right?

Let’s not forget that even without all these Big Government solutions, there was an 18 year Pause in increasing global temperatures, for which Warmists came up with dozens and dozens of excuses. It got to a point where it was tedious keeping track of them all.

    Do conservatives consider tariffs (taxes) to be a “market solution”?

    In a regulatory filing today, US motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson announced they’ll “eat” the cost of EU tariffs and the US tariffs on imported steel and aluminum rather than raising prices $2200 per unit this year, but are looking to move some production to the EU next year. They say the tariffs could cost $100 million this year. The EU is the maker’s second largest market.

    Moving production overseas “is not the company’s preference, but represents the only sustainable option to make its motorcycles accessible to customers in the EU and maintain a viable business in Europe,” Harley said in a Monday filing.

    Mid-Continent Nail Corporation in Poplar Bluff, MO laid off 12% of the work force, and said another 200 could be laid off soon, a result of higher steel prices from tariffs. They stated they may be out of business by Labor Day.

    Are nails really a national security concern? Are motorcycles?

    Anything that isn’t “partisan” is Democrat.
