Which means it stinks… kinda sorta like rotten eggs.
As of right now I am pretty confident that climate change will emerge as the biggest growth bubble of the next x decades.
Or rather you will soon be convinced that you should be the one to pay $$$ for it.
As the article linked below makes crystal clear, this scam was cooked up by Enron, politicians, do-gooders, power-brokers, scientists craving recognition, and a few other variety leechfuck bureaucrats and will result in the most effective mechanism yetinvented which to part you from your hard-earned.
These ‘folks’ have actually figured out a way to charge you for just being alive. Get ready to pay good dollars for, really, nothing at all except a tribute to their evil genius. It is difficult to tax aspects of human life which are not transaction based. No more. Breathing, eating, shitting, fucking, working, keeping warm, keeping cool- what have I left out here?- will soon have a new (and convenient) taxing mechanism applied to it.
Heh. You gotta appreciate the dastardly brilliance of it.
Perhaps the proposed federal VAT now being floated as a trial balloon (taxpayers somehow payback all that money that was given to the banks) will be renamed something like “the Rescuing the Planet Just in Time for the Future Families of America Act of 2xxx.”
The phantom premise at work here is that climate change is reality when it’s only half-baked conjecture formed around anecdotal evidence, wrapped up in feel-good sentiment of saving drowning polar bears to influence the mallrats of America what is best for them (and possibly the rest of the polar bears). The very same Americans, I’m sure you know, who have actually gotten more stupid, more gullible, and more naive from one generation to the next. Did I forget to mention complacent?
Open debate is left in the wind, as you’re told by the dint of your consent that this tax for your own damn good. For, just as Siggy Freud’s nephew Edward Bernays argued that the manipulation of public opinion was a necessary part of democracy, get ready for the next big bubble (I’m starting to wonder if all bubbles aren’t another form of taxation, a way of separating you from your money- just not as obvious). The same way that flouride was introduced into your drinking water, this scheme is being ramped up, being prepared, to be promoted with the same breathless panic that got us into Vietnam, the Iraq War (both times), got the No Bankers Left behind bill (“TARP”) rushed through Congress, the wasteful and imprudent bailing out of insolvent buisnesses (GM, Chrysler, etc.) and every stop being pulled in order to maintain the precious status quo.
The marginalization of sober researchers who might disagree with the conclusions of the carbon cartel is an all-time classic move which effectively neutralizes public debate. This tactic puts scientists at risk of losing funding or their jobs, if they don’t shut the fuck up and toe the line. The very bestest sturm and drang since Nazi’s marginalized Jews.
Let me reiterate, pure evil genius.
They’ve learned their lessons well.
The climate-change industry — the scientists, lawyers, consultants, lobbyists and, most importantly, the multinationals that work behind the scenes to cash in on the riches at stake — has emerged as the world’s largest industry. Virtually every resident in the developed world feels the bite of this industry, often unknowingly, through the hidden surcharges on their food bills, their gas and electricity rates, their gasoline purchases, their automobiles, their garbage collection, their insurance, their computers purchases, their hotels, their purchases of just about every good and service, in fact, and finally, their taxes to governments at all levels.
Almost two decades before President Barack Obama made “cap-and-trade” for carbon dioxide emissions a household term, an obscure company called Enron — a natural-gas pipeline company that had become a big-time trader in energy commodities — had figured out how to make millions in a cap-and-trade program for sulphur dioxide emissions, thanks to changes in the U.S. government’s Clean Air Act. To the delight of shareholders, Enron’s stock price rose rapidly as it became the major trader in the U.S. government’s $20-billion a year emissions commodity market.
No polar bears were harmed in the writing of this carbon-based medium.
