New “Landmark” Climate Report Recommends $240 Per Gallon Carbon Tax

As you know, there was a big climate change (scam) report released Monday that many media outlets are super enthused over

Not quite sure what she’s talking about, as most newspapers and TV stations that lean left are covering it. But, are they covering this?

A $240 PER GALLON GAS TAX TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING? NEW UN REPORT SUGGESTS CARBON PRICING

A United Nations special climate report suggests a tax on carbon dioxide emissions would need to be as high as $27,000 per ton at the end of the century to effectively limit global warming.

For Americans, that’s the same as a $240 per gallon tax on gasoline in the year 2100, should such a recommendation be adopted. In 2030, the report says a carbon tax would need to be as high as $5,500 — that’s equivalent to a $49 per gallon gas tax.

If you think that’s an unlikely scenario, you’re probably not wrong. However, it’s what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report, released Sunday night, sees as a policy option for reducing emissions enough to keep projected warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The IPCC’s report is meant to galvanize political support for doubling down on the Paris climate accord ahead of a U.N. climate summit scheduled for December. The report calls for societal changes that are “unprecedented in terms of scale” in order to limit future global warming to below 1.5 degrees Celsius, the stretch goal of the Paris accord.

Yeah, pretty much would never happen. But, this is what they were recommending. But, the UN IPCC’s numbers are not quite as high as the reports

In order to effectively keep future warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, the IPCC says carbon taxes would need to range from $135 to $5,500 per ton in 2030, $245 to $13,000 per ton in 2050, $420 to $17,000 per ton in 2070 and $690 to $27,000 per ton in 2100.

To meet the goals of the Paris accord, which seeks to limit future warming to below 2 degrees Celsius, the IPCC says carbon taxes would have range between $10 and $200 in 2030 and $160 and $2,125 in 2100.

A 2009 report had the average carbon footprint of Americans at 19.78 metric tons per year. That’s certainly gone down a bit (especially if we take all the Warmists and their extra large footprints out), but, let’s say it’s now 16mt: You’d pay between $160 and $3,200 in 2030 alone. And that’s just your own taxes. You’d also pay a lot more for everything as those taxes are passed on.

So, lead the way, Warmists: pay carbon taxes. Better yet, reduce your own footprints.

    They may as well just make Gasoline illegal. At $250 a gallon, no one will be able to afford it. While they are at it, make electricity illegal too, since no one will be able to afford that. For that matter, since they are making absurd recommendations as if they are real, why don’t they just demand that car makers create cars that don’t require any fuel to run? Then using Obamacare precedent, force everyone to buy one, even if they live in a city and have no need for any sort of car.

    The left is full blown communist now. They are supported fully by the socialist and communist parties of the USA. China is helping the Democrats destroy Trump and the Right in America.

    The left has become pure evil. They are filled with rage and anger and have lost their collective fuking minds. A vote for a democrat is a vote for tyranny and anarchy and the demise of the USA as we know it.

    IF you let the GOP lose the midterms and didnt vote…then thats on any of you who didnt vote. Every vote counts. So VOTE.
