I am floored that I totally agree with you on this: I also oppose climate change mitigation by taxing energy users.<quoted text>That means more expensive energy. The plan is to tax energy, especially from fossil fuel. I oppose climate change mitigation by taxing energy users and producers; if climate can be fixed with taxes it isn't broken.
If a company wants to use green energy, fine. Forcing taxpayers to support your billionaire crony pals with subsidies, government insured loans, buyouts, bailouts or executive mandate is wrong.
Congress has never authorized carbon limits or taxes. The courts might not like it, but the executive branch has no authority to regulate CO2 production.
I didn't ask for this. YOU told me it was OK to use fossil fuels, from the very beginning, and we didn't know at first how bad they could be. But all this time YOU, brain-dead representative of your now-evil multinationals, have gotten the profits without cleaning up your mess. Getting the pussy without taking out the trash. And you could even be forgiven for that, but not for the way you are acting now.
YOU should join in transitioning cause you're going to run out anyway; and soon, if we're in a bubble.
YOU should clean up your mess. And YOU should pay for it!
This is where we differ.
