Now to further show how GREED itself has always been behind this farce, I want to present an article from the website: CO2 Insanity, at www.co2insanity.com, entitled: "It's All About The Greed!", for my own readers to view in its entirely right here:
It’s all about the greed
For global warming policy, the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference (Copenhagen Summit) was a major disappointment. (DUH!) Designed to negotiate a successor to the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012,(Justifiably so!) the Summit concluded without a binding agreement because of deep divisions on the distribution of emissions reductions and costs (called everyone wants to reap the rewards but they don’t want to pay for them!). In addition, the United States failed to take action on a carbon cap-and-trade bill in 2010 (hopefully Congress isn’t THAT dumb!) Confronting this policy vacuum, leading climate economist William Nordhaus argues in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, published today, that carbon taxes are the best approach to achieve significant emissions reductions. (Ah yes, tax it!)
William Nordhaus argues that the cap-and-trade approach used in the 1997 Kyoto Protocol will not accomplish the goals of slowing climate change (read the goals of screwing the taxpayers out of more money). As currently designed, it is both economically inefficient and ineffective (because the public isn’t THAT stupid) and should be supplemented or replaced. Additionally, a carbon tax could be a useful means to cut budget deficits while meeting environmental objectives. (Environmental objectives my ass! It’s the money!!!!!)
If economics provides a single bottom line for policy, it is that we need to correct this market failure (AKA: No one believes their bullshit) by ensuring that all people, everywhere, and for the indefinite future, face a market price for the use of carbon that reflects the social costs of their activities,” Nordhaus states.
Economic evidence suggests the cost of this limited participation is high.
Given a choice between a cap-and-trade system (such as is embodied in the Kyoto model), and a carbon tax system (such as is used for limiting gasoline or cigarette consumption), Nordhaus favors taxation: “Countries have used taxes for centuries,” he says. “By contrast, there is no experience – as in zero – with international cap-and-trade systems.”
“The international community should move quickly to replace the current cap-and-trade structure by one in which the central economic mechanism is a tax on greenhouse-gas emissions,” Nordhaus concludes.
NTS Notes: Believe it or not, there are still people out there that still believe strongly in the Global Warming (or as they call it now: "Climate Change") fraud.... Again, it is up to us to enlighten them to the reality of this scam.
Again, I am really wondering what ever happened to the chief fraudster in this whole swindle, Al Gore, himself? If he ever makes an appearance in public and continues to peddle this scam, we should be ready for him!
More to come
