Yup... your arguments fail in the face of your hypocrisy.

"Crisis"? Nope... you keep posting as if there is one.

Shut up you phony hypocrite.

Now, who is being pissed off and spiteful? I not only give to charity, I do at least eight weeks of volunteer work each year and pay for supplies needed. I drive a 2002 Cavalier and I have only flown twice. My carbon footprint is much below average and I have 24 CFL's and replacing them with LED's as they fail.
Now tell us how you are doing your part.
You left out your inane screeds you post online.

You do know that creates CO2 don't you?

And that CO2 is at "crisis" levels, right?

But you still keep posting... and posting... and posting.

That makes you a hypocrite.

No?

So.. shut up and prove it.

So you believe the "bottom" is being added too by the system Reagan & his buds refined into a well oiled machine. Take for instance the computer industry as it's where I made my living from, there was a time when America made the best motherboards in the world. Now not even one bluechip company makes one, they are all made in Asia. Then go across every industry, steel, cars, clothing, whitegoods, electronics, it just goes on and on. Those total job loses add up into the millions over the years lost to Corporations who wanted to improve their bottom line by chasing cheap labor. In some cases they had too or go bust because of cheap imports from overseas. Either way it left industry after industry with massive unemployment and they can't all get jobs in the service industries cleaning toilets for the 1%'ers who lost nothing. Explain how dropping taxes gives any of them a better chance of a career or that it creates new opportunities building at the bottom. You are living a delusion!
All of the above Obama played NO PART in creating, it was capitalism allowed to go cowboy all the way through the financial system to all industries.
The preceding screed was brought to you by a warmist who claims to believe in the "settled" science of "crisis" level CO2 in the atmosphere.

You're a phony liar.

Shut up already.

Global Warming is a myth written in mythology!
Ancient Greeks knew all about Zeus and Folks,
New York City Folks, city slickers!
They could see ahead in time just like some
believe they can now?
Just that neither really knew/knows anything about
the future.
Only the lady with palm reading skills can do that.

Where did all these experts come from? Rather presumptuous for them to believe that they know more about the climate than the scientists, isn't it? Just where do they get their information. Doubt that any do basic research. Anti science, anti progress, anti environment, anti gays, anti religious freedom, anti gun control, anti government, anti, anti, anti.......
Really! Just what are they for???

For a start, all you see a carbon tax as another tax not what it has been designed to do. But that's just your political filters engaged. If the West were universal in implementing it, starting with the US as it's still the economic engine room for the world. Everyone of the US trading partners would jump on board in a heartbeat. Then Asia would have to comply and if they didn't then you can hit them with a carbon import tax on everything they make where their factories don't comply. In September this year I make a bet with you right now that China will come on board with emissions limits something they didn't want a bar of at Kyoto and they sucked the US in with them, which gave THEM a huge advantage in both labor costs and environmental laws because they ignored all of them to build what they have now.
That was the big mistake made then, the next mistake will be keep doing the same thing. Carbon pricing does two things, it forces emissions down due to costs and provides incentive for new industries to start in renewable energy. It's the carrot of opportunity that you bend over backwards to deny. But if it's done right, then it's the new gold rush that you can't even see.
