Gary Johnson Backs CO2 ‘Fee’ To Fight Global Warming
by Michael Bastasch
Libertarian Party presidential nominee and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson said he’s no skeptic of man-made global warming and endorsed a “fee” on carbon dioxide emissions.
It’s all part of his “free market” approach to global warming, Johnson told the Juneau Empire in an article published Sunday.
“I do believe that climate change is occurring,” Johnson said. “I do believe that it is man-caused” and “that there can be and is a free-market approach to climate change.”
Johnson’s “free market” approach to global warming, includes “a fee — not a tax, he said — placed on carbon” to make those who emit the greenhouse gas pay the supposed cost of their actions, according to the Juneau Empire.
“We as human beings want to see carbon emissions reduced significantly,” he said, adding the U.S. only emits “16 percent of the (global) load” CO2.
Johnson said: “I don’t want to do anything that harms jobs.”
It’s not exactly clear how a “fee” on CO2 would be different than a “tax,” but Johnson’s announcement was picked up by environmentalists
Johnson’s carbon “fee” was touted by the group RepublicEN, a group of (so-called) conservatives who endorse a carbon tax. RepublicEN has joined with environmentalists to promote a carbon tax as the best way to tackle global warming….
[NOTE: a “fee” from and for THE GOVERNMENT equals a TAX!]
The problem is this:
- Hitlary is NOT an alternative. EVER. AT ALL. NO REAL CONSERVATIVE NOR CHRISTIAN SHOULD EVER SUPPORT, NOR VOTE FOR, NOR GIVE MONEY TO HITLARY KLINTON! NEVER. EVER. PERIOD!
- And because Little, Lying, Liberal Donnie El Trampo has, and DOES, support, voted for and gave oodles-n-gobs of Ka-CHING $$$$ TO Hitlary, AND has/does share ALL the same views and “values” he is NOT an alternative for a REAL Conservative NOR Christian.
- Gary Johnson is NOT a real alternative for REAL Conservatives and Christians either. He is first a Libertarian, one who shares many of the same views as Liberals (see above article). Global warming is NOT man-made, and RAISING TAXES or “fees” FOR The Government to fight a Liberal hoax IS on it’s face 100% LIBERAL and utter non-sense.
The ONLY real choice for Conservatives and Christians who put God, God’s Word, The Declaration of Independence, Federalist Papers, The Constitution and Bill of Rights above popular opinion and Liberal bullying (you Trump-Bots listening) is either Evan McMullin or a Ted Cruz Write-in.
Because, well, there is NO difference between Hitlary Klinton and Little, Lying, Liberal Donnie El Trampo.
