Carbon Taxes Or Trading – What Do You Know 2

We have all read about carbon taxes and other malicious fees that our EPA is preparing for the American public. Just how many people in the US know anything about it?

Why should there be a carbon tax? What is it supposed to accomplish? Will carbon taxes halt climate change? Are there other alternatives to handling risks attributed to climate change?

Fortunately for us, we have a guinea pig in the form of the entire country of Australia which foolishly established a carbon tax. We have the figures estimated by world-class economists and climate scientists on the effectiveness of a carbon tax in combating carbon dioxide induced climate change.

A young Australian named Topher Field recently volunteered to produce and direct several YouTube videos explaining carbon taxes and climate change for lay persons. He financed this endeavor with contributions from climate skeptics from all over the world. This is, indeed, a grass-roots effort.

Take a look at the video and decide for yourself. The bottom line is that it costs fifty times more to try to squelch carbon emissions than just adapting to possible damage.

  1. Thanks for the link. I have been reading about Henrik Svensmark’s work in galactic cosmic rays for a couple of years, and it is fascinating that the idea is proving out. Plus, it was always intriguing to climate skeptics that during the Dalton Minimum (sunspots disappeared for a while) things got really cold around the world. Since sunspots are an indication of magnetic activity on the sun’s surface, it makes sense that without sunspots, magnetic activity would be low, and we would have more galactic cosmic rays making more clouds, making things a lot colder. OK. I am through. Thanks for the comment.
