Jimmy Carter Advocates Taxing Carbon Dioxide

Jimmy Carter is no climate scientist, but he acts like simply assuming an alleged consensus is all the authority he needs. In a world where the claims of global warming have been dismantled and the climate change believers are already practicing censorship, where major governments are refusing to cooperate with the scam, the few times counter-evidence is acknowledged it is always discounted, and idiotic pseudo-science is promulgated in mainstream news by degreed scholars, we are supposed to submit to Jimmy Carter’s expertise on climate and acquiesce to new taxes on the use of economical energy.

Carter recently declared that taxing Carbon Dioxide was “the only reasonable approach” to dealing with global warming. Fox 31 Denver reported that the former President was given a lifetime achievement award at the the American Renewable Energy Day summit in Aspen, Colorado where he spoke. Carter

spoke during a luncheon attended by a number of conservationists as well as Ted Turner, T. Boone Pickens and Tom Steyer, the California billionaire pledging to devote his personal finances to political candidates willing to take action on climate change.

Translation: there are people who expect to make a lot of money from what will essentially be a worldwide plunder of the middle class through energy prices.

But Carter’s remarks were helpful. He shows us that conservatives have woken up since his presidency.

The 39th president, who created the Dept. of Energy and advocated for conservation before scientists began to understand the impact of human activity on climate, told AREI’s Sally Ranney that he didn’t have to deal with the same level of partisan gridlock in Congress as President Obama currently does.

“I think now the opportunity is even greater for us to take action. But we had very good support then from Republicans, almost as much from Republicans as Democrats,” he said.

“The country was not divided into red and blue states then. Money didn’t completely control the campaigns for Congress and president.

“I believe almost anything President Obama advocates, Congress is going to oppose.”

My translation: Keep up the good work!

Naturally, Carter argued for a scientific claim by personal insults:

“The biggest problem we have right now is some nutcases in our country who don’t believe in global warming. I think that they are going to change their position because the evidence of the ravages of global warming is coming or is already there.”

This is total garbage but Carter has the support and protection of billionaires. He’s never going to be called to account for his lying.
