A View from the Altar / The real agenda behind carbon dioxide

The real agenda behind carbon dioxide

Government carbocrats are lunging at the end of their leash over so-called cap and trade plans for carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions.  These plans should really be called cap and tax, because that’s what they are.  The government will set limits on the amount of CO2 and other gases that can be emitted and charge a fee for anything above that amount.

The tax will be huge.  Estimates are coming in around $646 billion.  To put this in perspective: This is about 25 percent of total annual federal tax revenue! Even if they spread it out over a few years, it’s still a fantastic amount of money.  Are you ready for a giant tax hike disguised as a power bill?

Look for tax-and-spend liberals to shove this as hard as they can as soon as they can.  No scientific consensus about man-made global warming ever existed in the first place, and that’s becoming increasingly obvious as 2009 continues the cooling trend seen for the past few years.  Political support for a gargantuan tax hike based on a scientific hoax is weakening fast.  If the Democrats can’t get this new tax passed this year, it’s doubtful they could get it done before the midterm elections in 2010 because nobody votes for more taxes right before an election.  That would put the next shot at a massive carbon tax sometime in 2011.  If the cooling trend continues until 2011, there would be no support left for the tax at all.

I’m betting Henry Waxman, a dead ringer for Gollum, has made this political calculation himself, and will exert himself to the utmost to get his hands on the precious, oops, I mean, tax money before the opportunity slips away for ever.

    Yes, I was aware of that from Anthony Watts’ site. Watts has also been reporting the global COOLING trend for the past few years.
