When Democrats say America must do something about global warming, they never fully explain what that something is. Instead, they talk in nebulous terms about cutting back on the use of fossil fuels. Theres a reason they obfuscate. If voters find out what they have in mind, theyll be routed in 2020, and they know it.
Having embraced the extreme do something plan known as the Green New Deal, Democrats have an nasty surprise in store for voters who havent looked beneath the lipstick and mascara thats being troweled on in pancake-thick layers to conceal the linchpin of their plan to save the planet: a massive punitive tax on the consumption of fossil-fuel energy.
Just how big a tax do the UN-worshiping Democrats have in mind? They desperately dont want you to know, but theres a way to read the tea leaves. You might want to sit down for this, because what youll learn in the next paragraph will leave your jaw on the floor.
As reported by Forbes, 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 UNs 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 cant?

Take this very seriously. It is not an exaggeration. They want to eliminate the use of petroleum products. Too cowardly to declare them illegal overnight, they will resort to tricks like this.
Yes they will!
If they weren't so evil I'd feel pity for them and their severe mental illness and retardation.
That’s $49 a gallon in *Western* coountries.China will pay $0 a gallon.
We all know, or should know, EXACTLY what it means: MORE AND MORE GOVERNMENT which means more and more poverty as THEY TAKE more and more of your money and freedom and you keep less and less.
We need to be very clear about this: The Delusional Lying Left and their Democrat minions have ONE GOAL in mind: GLOBAL TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT which morphs quickly into WORLDWIDE ISLAMIC SUPREMACY.
The Democrat Party is the End-Time host to the spirit of antichrist that will usher in the Great Tribulation. Soon, but not yet - in the latter half of this century IMO.
Costs passed along to us for all the necessary vehicles on the road...police, fire, EMS, utility, mail/delivery services, etc....
A solution is to ban gasoline cars for young people. If that is what they want, let them be the first to start with it.
In Atlas Shrugged Part 2, there was a scene where Dagney filled up the truck she borrowed at a gas station in Leadville, Colorado.
20.46 gallons cost her $865.72
Yeah. They want us there.
Farmers & ranchers who currently feed this country & many others will only be feeding themselves if this gets implemented.
How many acres of growing space are in those fancy condos & high rises????? Who even know HOW to grow anything?
Except distrust & dissent, of course.
I deal with a lot of Kool-Aid drinkers in my work.
I listen for a while, and then ask,
It gives them pause.
All it takes is the first three minutes of this video to expose the sham that climate alarmists are perpetrating.
I like the reference to PigLosi.
First, the tax will be correctly waived
for celebrities, politicians and the UN.
Second, the tax will go to the politicians
in the DNC who have patented the carbon scheme,
and also back to Soros and his cabal
who have imposed it.
In Atlas Shrugged
EVERY high school student should have to read this before graduating !!
I never even heard of it until I was in my 40’s.
Did you read about the rich wine country Tesla owners who tried to get away from the Fires. But, the electricity was out so their car batteries were empty. Too bad. Welcome to Green Socialism.
By the way, propane generators are selling like hot cakes. So out side of many houses, there is a propane tank, just waiting for a fire. The generators are selling because the electric company turns off electricity. Socialism never thinks it through. But California is rich with comic relief.
You know we can’t have the peasants driving their cars whenever/wherever they want. They must be controlled. The $50/gal tax on freedom is the answer.
Hum, another thread had it listed the UN was broke and needing money to pay its staff. Well then, the solution is at hand, NO MORE MONEY. When more of these jokers are out there in the street of Nairobi or wherever they hail from, the better for us.
