    America must be punished, and if Kerry can't do it we'll find Rhino's to do it to us.

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-govern...-admits-american-co2-cuts-would-be-pointless/

    "........Secretary of State John Kerry made an astounding confession today at the COP-21 climate conference in Paris: Emissions cuts by the U.S. and other industrialized nations will make no difference to global climate, he said.
    Here are Kerry’s exact words:

    … The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what – that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.


    If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions –- remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions -– it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65% of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world............"

    Republican corrupt morons may be worse than the Dems. At least the idiotic libs probably are stupid enough to believe the fake man caused climate change BS. The Republicans are simply totally corrupt.

    I recall that a carbon tax was part of Gary Johnson's campaign platform. These kooks come in all flavors and affiliations...

    Why would these nearly "has been's" want to do this. It's gotta be about money.

    From how I read it, the supporters think it's a good "compromise" with environmentalists over the dropping of hundreds of Federal environmental regulations. They say it's a free market, conservative approach to it. Sounds squirrelly to me.................. but I don't know much more about it than what the article posts. Seems they got an audience with Trump's top people. I hope it gets placed in File 13 after they leave.

    Yes hopefully Trump will tell these people to screw off. But there is no reason for Repubs who control both houses of Congress, the Oval Office and hopefully soon the Supreme Court to compromise with lying enviro scammers. When the Dems had full power we got Obama Care shoved down our throats. They didn't compromise.

    Carbon Tax = Scam of Epic Proportions.

    We will all pay for it one way or another.

    Trump is on record calling it a hoax. Baker could be meeting with Ivanka about something completely different but the NYT is crossing their fingers and hoping it's a carbon tax.

    Someone is going to get Rich behind this. They are not doing this because they are "born again environmentally aware." Of that you can be sure. They seem to be treating the "carbon tax" as a, what is it the pope gives to sinners when they donate money? Special dispensation or exceptions?

    They seem to be planning to use these tax credit in lue of EPA regulations. Some shenanigans are getting ready to happen.

    If you want to reduce carbon emissions all we have to do is replace coal power plant with nuclear power. If you want to reduce the CO2 already in the atmosphere it has been proposed that we add iron to the barren parts of the ocean. This would cause massive plankton blooms and that would absorb huge amounts of CO2. It would also mean more fish and that would help feed people high quality protein.
    The left hates both of these ideas because they might be solutions to problems. If the problem is solved they just lost an issue to b!+ch about.

    That and probably another good dose of smoke and mirrors if the "greenies" can stay involved.
