So, they're actively implementing the carbon tax crap in various states, and counties now; accompanied with the differing UN mandates that are tied to, or embroiled into this 'topic'.
Like in California, not mega corporations, but the small folks working in the service industry; anything over a 1 ton weight rating, year by year must come off the road simply for being too old. Right now, I don't think anything over a 95' can be on the road over 1 ton; next year a 96', and so forth.
Yet, that only impacts the small guy who cannot afford a new $70k + truck, the guy who wants that older rig, as it makes them their money to eat with, and due to the age, it's simple enough to work on.... All of this carbon, and 'save the planet' shit, will only impact the regular people; while the bastards shitting across the globe in their private jets will keep on keeping on. Sad.
Less than 50% QUOTE " a United Nations special climate report calls for a global carbon tax of $49 per gallon of gasoline within 12 years. You read that right: $49 per gallon. At roughly 100 times the average state and federal gasoline tax, the U.N.'s carbon tax "suggestion" would raise the cost of a 13-gallon fill-up to over $600, just for the carbon tax.
Think about the economic implications of that. The mega-rich climate shills who bellow the loudest about the alleged perils of global warming can easily absorb a gasoline tax of that magnitude. But what about the roughly 125 million typical American households that can't?
To be sure, there are other ways than gasoline to slap a tax on man-made CO2 emissions, and you can bet your last dime that Democrats will, if given the chance, enact carbon taxation that will put a hammerlock on America's capitalist economy.
Whatever form of carbon tax they ultimately choose, Democrats intend to control virtually every aspect of your life: where you can live, the size of home you can have, the minimum number of residents in your home, whether you're allowed to have a second home, the amount of air-conditioning you're allowed to use, the kind of car you can have, the number of cars you can have, what you're allowed to eat, and whether you're allowed to travel by air or take your family on a cruise."
