Sounds like somebody is trying to spoil our warm afordable hobby .

40.00 dollar per ton added tax . .......That will hurt a lot.

Dave :shock:

Not happy about this one !

Surprised it didn't happen during the obummer regime. Guess we can "lump" coal in with that most dangerous AND taxed substance called tobacco :)

These A-holes think we burn stuff just to burn it?

I think that they should tax their own personal carbon emissions so that every word that they utter costs them one million dollars.

Better than a carbon tax would be to cut off funding in climate research and spend the money on research on investigating new forms of energy.

Less or more expensive energy means a poorer country.

Rationing rather than taxing would really make the limousine liberals howl, but would be the only fair method if you were really serious. It was what was done in WW2.

I'd be much happier if they would just stop emitting carbon dioxide altogether... seems to me like that would eliminate the problem... :verycool:

SWPaDon ,

Yes your link IS the correct one .

I only hope this is a major head fake move !

What can get out of more taxes that will help ?

We have a spending problem , not a tax problem.

Actually during WW2 the Limo crowd was least affected by rationing. If one can afford a Limo you can afford the perks that only money can get. As the old saying goes, Money talks & BS walks ;)
