Common Sense Rather Than Carbon Tax Schemes
September 15, 2015 in Economics
“To speed up progress in tackling climate change, policymakers need to build political support by investing in clean-energy industries rather than first penalizing polluters, according to a new policy paper by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.
In the paper, to be published Thursday, Sept. 10, in the journal Science, a multidisciplinary team of environmental, political and legal experts finds that instead of emphasizing cap-and-trade schemes and penalties on greenhouse gas emissions – strategies considered to be most efficient by many economists – policymakers should begin by providing benefits through green industrial policies, such as subsidies and tax rebates.”
Not long into the article they still try to draw support for establishing a carbon tax down the line… As the famous saying goes “the power to tax is the power to destroy” and we are carbon based lifeforms, think about it. Totalitarians desire to tax life itself.
