    Oh we are the Democrats and we got a carbon tax comin' for you! Tax tax tax the people into oblivion to keep the government in charge of our lives!

    Democrats suck on the government teet and want the government to play mommy and daddy.

    Republicans want the government off our backs so we can all be independent people.

    I never understood why the Dems want the government in control of everything while simultaneously saying the government is good for nothing.

    So, i saw that some wit on the forum said that tge Democrats can never unite.
    But here, Halfie has demonstrably proven that anything any one democrat says, or that any Repub SAYS a democrat says, is equally applicable to each and every other democrat, a united front of groupspeak. We all say the same thing, and all the things.

    Pick a story and stick to it, yabbo.

    Unless you're a woman, gay or a transgender, then the Republicans are all up in your business, sometimes literally!

    A carbon tax could perfectly well be made revenue neutral.

    Apart from raising perhaps trillions more revenue for big socialist government agendas, how exactly will that reduce carbon emissions? Remember, that human caused CO2 is around 0.03% of the total planet's carbon emissions!

    Right wingers are so susceptible ... any two-bit conman can rile them up enough to get them to strip for a fight, then run off with their clothes.
    And they wonder why they stand naked, defending the likes of the baboon in the Whitehouse...

    Good grief;

    Because what really terrifies me is what we are seeing at our borders in Europe and North America and Australia – I don’t think it’s coincidental that the settler colonial states and the countries that are the engines of that colonialism are at the forefront of this. We are seeing the beginnings of the era of climate barbarism.

    "Climate justice" wasn't frightening enough.

    During the Roman era, temperatures were anything up to 4-6C higher than today. If the human population was only around 250.000, it is hardly likely human produced CO2 was the reason for the 4-6C warmer climate but rather from natural causes as it is today. It's not CO2 that causes warming but the opposite. Warming causes rises in CO2. It's always been that way ever since planet Earth acquired an atmosphere. Proof is CO2 levels up to six times higher than what they are today after the end of an ice age. Not that long ago in recent history, Vikings cultivated crops in Greenland and seas were anything up to 20 feet higher than what they are today. The truth is were are still coming out of the last ice age and have a long way to go before land ice such as what is on Greenland melts.
