The main stream media and the Globalists in the United States have finally begun to show their true colours. In an article written by Carl Pope published in the Huffington Post titled ‘Why It’s Time to Tax Carbon Pollution’, it has been argued that the United States should follow the lead set by Australia and introduce a carbon tax as part of tax reform and the climate change movement
The author, Carl Pope, claims that ‘carbon taxes fit conservative tax theory’ and that it would be an ‘important symbol’ for believers of climate change and global warming. He then goes on to claim that a carbon tax would ‘put in place one important piece of an eventual, global, harmonized carbon fee’ (setting the stage for world government).
Many of the claims made by Pope are misleading and outright dishonest.
Pope claims that carbon taxes ‘would generate revenues, and if climate advocates can bring power to the negotiating table, those revenues in part might be devoted to other aspects of energy innovation, like paying for renewable power incentives’.
Of course the tax would generate revenues, but at what cost? As with the current carbon tax experiment in Australia, a carbon tax is nothing but a transfer payment from low-income earners to the pockets of the elite. Having the government force investors to invest in renewable energy will only lead to failure.
He then goes onto claim that:
The threat of climate disruption is real, (that) carbon is harmful and not beneficial, and that something will need to be done.
It’s well-known that the threats of global warming are yet to be conclusively proven, still, main stream media outlets such as the Huffington Post continue to push the globalist agenda on unsuspecting Americans without any accountability or concern.
The claims made by Pope and the Huffington Post are just as ridiculous as those made by America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Recently, America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration blamed bad weather on global warming. Yes, you read that correctly.
Pope concludes his argument for a carbon tax by claiming:
The biggest danger for the climate movement in a carbon tax debate is that we will let the symbolism trump the substance.
Is he for real? The symbolism of the climate movement is nothing but a fallacy that will lead to the demise of our economic prosperity and that carbon taxes will only be paid by the poor and disadvantaged. The global elite will reap the profits.
The environmental movement’s failure to focus on the worlds real environmental issues such as the overfishing of our seas and water pollution has diluted their cause and mislead many into believing that the environmental movement could generate the momentum for change they seek.
Unfortunately, at the end of the day, developing countries like China and India will never succumb to the pressures imposed by the globalists and environmental movements. China and India will continue to pollute more than ever, and recent figures show that their level of CO2 emissions are increasing. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t improve our environment, but means we should focus on the tangible risks, not the made-up lies of the globalists and environmental movements.
