look at the NHS and the money it is generating..hospitals full.building more..massive waiting lines..business is booming!
it will be the same if they can leverage carbon tax..a political cash cow for generations..with the answers ALWAYS ending in an INCREASE in carbon taxes to combat climate change through pollution..

Yes I agree the carbon tax is a big pile of rubbish. But this doesn't address the fact that I don't want to breath in smog in the city and be a slave to the oil companies. We should be able to have alternative energy without a carbon tax, plain and simple. Then let supply and demand dictate what is best for humanity. My guess is people will choose electric vehicles over combustion engines in the long run, not due to global warming, but because the demand is there to not breath in smog.
