SEARCH BLOG: ENVIRONMENT and CO2
Yesterday, I commented on what I perceived to be a bad economic idea... taxing CO2 production. While I am not "anti-tax" in the sense that I am against pooling resources for the local, state, or national interest... I am against the notion of taxes to achieve political agendas.
The idea of taxing CO2 is political to its core. As James Killus puts it: "Where do you get off deciding how much CO2 gets put in _our_ air?" In other words, I have a notion that you might be harming my world sometime in the future, so you have to give up living the way you do.
Well... why bother with taxes at all?? Let's get right down to business:
- ban all natural gas (and propane) and oil furnaces
- ban all natural gas (and propane) appliances
- ban all combustion engines
- ban all combustion power plants
- ban all fireplaces, barbeques, and campfires
- ban all excess people (China has a good policy) ... too much exhalation
- ban all future paving and building on any undeveloped land
- ban clearing any forest for other land use
- ... feel free to add your own bad idea....
And who said fascism is a bad form of government?
