On the heels of Hurricane Sandy and the re-election of President Obama last week, the Congressional Budget Office released a report titled, “Offsetting a Carbon Tax’s Costs on Low-Income Households.” The Associated Press reported that both the liberal Brookings Institution and conservative American Enterprise Institute think tanks are also revisiting the U.S. carbon tax with discussions and reports of their own this week. California’s first cap and trade bidding on carbon emission credits took place yesterday, despite a lawsuit filed by the state’s Chamber of Commerce.
Right on time, Al Gore premiered another 24-hour online global warming scarefest last night entitled, “24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Report” aiming to promote “climate reality”; the move coincides with Gore openly calling on President Obama to reintroduce the carbon tax as part of the “fiscal cliff” budget crisis.
It would seem the U.S. carbon tax is alive and well and, if climate change alarmist Gore and his globalist friends have their way, it’s coming soon to a bank account near you.
Gore’s latest “24 Hours of Reality” fearmongering stunt came complete with a faux commercial featuring a weatherman forecasting obscenity-laced imaginary 110-degree temperatures and skyrocketing grocery prices due to global warming.
As part of Gore’s initiative, he asked people to visit his Climate Reality Project website to “change the world” by taking the climate reality pledge and signing up to become a “Climate Leader” who will help educate on environmentalism. The project, which boasts 5 million members worldwide, claims “dirty energy has created a world of dirty weather” and assures us “Climate change is not your fault for the car you drive, the lights you turn on, or the food you eat. The climate crisis is our problem” (emphasis added).
So join the frightened enviro-herd because, apparently, we can fix our problem together; all it’ll take is forking over money to Gore via the carbon taxes you can pay him on your personal CO2 emissions (otherwise known as breathing).
If climate change could somehow be proven personally attributable to the lights people turn on, Gore might be more responsible than most considering his $8.8-million-dollar seaside mansion and pool house used nearly a quarter of a million kilowatt hours in a single a year to the tune of $30,000 in utility bills.
As previously reported, Gore stands to rake in billions if carbon tax initiatives are implemented, so he continues to push this global warming scare-a-thon agenda on the public to ultimately profiteer off the government policies it promotes. Nevermind the fact that man-made climate change is a hoax that’s been perpetrated to implement a global government through, among other things, money making scams like the carbon tax, cap and trade, and various other eugenics agenda ends. Maybe Gore thinks if he repeats his global warming fear mantra over and over long enough, it’ll somehow magically make it true.
Remember the early-1990s cartoon Captain Planet? It was the second longest running cartoon series of its decade.
Five young people from different continents, dubbed Planeteers, were charged with saving the Earth from disasters and educating humanity on ways to go green. They fought “eco-villians” like Duke Nukem (representing the misuse of nuclear power); Hoggish Greedly (representing overconsumption); Looten Plunder (representing capitalism); and Mame Slaughter (representing animal endangerment). When the Planeteers powers combined, it summoned “Earth’s Greatest Champion” Captain Planet, a magical blue guy with a green mullet and a weakness to pollution who reminded kids that, when it came to saving the planet, “The power is yours!”
Fun fact: known eugenicist billionaire Ted Turner, who openly talks about how we need a one-child policy to decrease the world’s population down to two billion people and that troop suicides are a “good” thing, co-created Captain Planet. Turner has also donated a billion dollars to the United Nations, which established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Was Captain Planet global warming and depopulation propaganda programming on a massive scale? What’s more, does Al Gore think he is a real-life Captain Planet?
Let’s fast forward to today. The cartoon’s target audience of early ’90s elementary and middle school kids are now adults dealing with a world constantly apprising them of the fact that man-made global warming and overpopulation are killing the planet.
