A national carbon tax will devastate the poor…

“But the CBO notes that even the comparatively modest carbon tax it envisioned would likely have some deleterious effects on economic output, and employment and corporate profits, which is to say all the other stuff we’re already taxing to fund the spending we’re already doing:” click here

Greenhouse gas emissions are dropping in the United States, rising in Europe

“New reports show that greenhouse gas emissions are plunging in the United States and rising in Europe—and the drop in the U.S. is due to falling costs of renewable energy and natural gas.” click here

Western democracies are increasingly minor carbon dioxide emitters

“The United States and Western democracies as a whole are increasingly minor players among global carbon dioxide emitters, U.S. EPA data show. Without dramatic emissions reductions in China, India, and other developing nations, dramatic reductions in the United States, Western Europe, and Japan will have little impact on global carbon dioxide emissions.” click here

Bioenergy (wood burning) is not carbon-neutral

“There is one problem. Ecologists say that the claims of carbon neutrality, which are accepted by the European Union and the British government, do not stand up to scrutiny. The forests of North Carolina, Louisiana, and Mississippi — as well as those in Europe — are being destroyed to sustain a European fantasy about renewable energy. And with many power plants in Europe and elsewhere starting to replace coal with wood, the question of who is right is becoming ever more important.” click here

Carbon Taxes Increase Carbon Dioxide Emissions

“Instead, adopting carbon taxes in the West will actually raise global carbon emissions by offshoring economic activity from relatively environmentally-friendly places, like the USA and Germany, to places with lax environmental laws, like China.” click here

A Rather Scathing Rebuke of German Climate Policy to Reduce CO2

“The reality is that Trump and America has nothing to learn from the Green-preaching Germans, except on how to deceive and mislead the public. “ click here

Sea Ice and Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Unrelated

“According to climate models, anthropogenic CO2 emissions drive trends in polar sea ice.   The sea ice extent in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres should therefore gradually decline (linearly) as human emissions rise.

However, neither the Arctic nor Antarctic sea ice trends appear to be cooperating with these modeled expectations.” click here for notrickszone.
