The Post is telling Obama to pull a Julia Gilliard, and implement a carbon tax after the election.
The Post’s View The carbon tax
EARLY WEDNESDAY, delivering his victory speech in Chicago, President Obama elevated an issue that had hardly come up during the campaign. “We want our children to live in an America,” he said, “that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”
Later that day, Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters that climate change is an important issue and that he wants to “address it reasonably” — particularly following big storms in the Northeast that have highlighted rising sea levels and other dangers associated with global warming.
A tax on carbon ….. is the best plan lawmakers can take off the shelf to fight global warming.
There can be little doubt that raising US taxes during a deep recession will end the 20,000 year long rise in sea level, and prevent future hurricanes from intersecting with cold fronts.
