So, the news is that US ambassador to the United Nations has resigned and a new report on climate change by the totalitarian organization puts forth some pretty silly things, including the need to tax gas to the tune of $240 per gallon in order to fight a fictitious global warming.
According to the report, they want to tax carbon dioxide emissions, you know those things that cause plants to grow and be really green that some of us learned about in grade school, to be taxed as high as $27,000 per ton! The fact that they want this to occur by the end of the twenty-first century is still just as laughable if they were not deadly serious. And when I say “deadly serious,” I mean it.
So, what does that come down to? What is a tax on carbon dioxide emissions in the amount of $27,000 per ton to average inhabitants of the planet? Around $240 per gallon of gasoline.
Now, that is considering that tax would occur in 2100. But what if we just considered a few years away, like basically a decade? What is the UN proposing?
It really isn’t much better.
By 2030, they want a carbon tax as high as $5,500, which is $49 per gallon of gas!
Are these people snorting gas? Are they crazy? Nope, this is the totalitarian method of enslaving people. First, they make them stupid and teach them to be workers, not those who seek to glorify their Creator in what they do. Then in making them workers, they seek to take their money through lies about the environment in order to steal the money they’ve made.
I can say that at least the Trump administration called into question the UN’s models, which are built upon lies. We all know it. We’ve had the documented evidence that “science” the UN relies on has been fabricated and manipulated.
Suzanne Hamner writes:
The Trump administration should do more than question the climate change farce; it should reject all notions of this absurdity. This is another point on the checklist justifying the US pulling out of the UN, ceasing funding the corrupt cabal, evicting the entire body out of the US, and dismantling the useless organization that only wants to milk wealthy nations to enrich globalists and corrupt third world dictators. Science should be the determining factor when evaluating climate change. And, fortunately, science is not on the side of the global government wannabe.
Michael Bastasch, who writes immensely on the propaganda of climate change, says the challenges of actually imposing the ridiculous taxes are extremely high.
However, the costs of meeting that goal are high based on the IPCC’s own figures.
In order to effectively keep future warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, the IPCC says carbon taxes would need to range from $135 to $5,500 per ton in 2030, $245 to $13,000 per ton in 2050, $420 to $17,000 per ton in 2070 and $690 to $27,000 per ton in 2100.
To meet the goals of the Paris accord, which seeks to limit future warming to below 2 degrees Celsius, the IPCC says carbon taxes would have range between $10 and $200 in 2030 and $160 and $2,125 in 2100.
That’s equivalent to a gas tax as high as $1.70 per gallon in 2030 to nearly $19 per gallon at the end of the century. That’s less onerous than limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, but still no walk in the park.
Why are we even debating this? Is this in America’s interest at all? Let me ask a better question: What interest does the united States truly have in the United Nations? No interest at all.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: We need to get out of the United Nations. Every informed Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian and anyone in between knows what I’m saying is true. So, why don’t we do it? We are doing nothing more than feeding a beast that is set on eating us alive, much like our own federal beast is doing.
Let’s not wait till 2100 or even 2030. Let’s push to do what Nikki Haley has done. Let’s choose to leave the UN for good!
