Remember, when they speak of reducing carbon... they are talking about YOU!

We are carbon-based creatures. Our bodies are something like 20% carbon. Carbon is not a bad thing. In fact, plants require it to grow.

When the elitists talk about 'reducing carbon', they are not talking about gas, oil or coal... that can be remedied with money. The elite have money. Therefore they can afford gas, oil, coal, etc. no matter what the price.

The carbon they are having difficulty with is the 20% you're carrying around.

If we allow them to declare a naturally occurring, necessary element to be 'dangerous' then we are indeed almost through as a race.

What will be next... and oxygen tax?

They are talking about

They are talking about carbon dioxide (CO2, one carbon atom combined with two oxygen atoms), not carbon (C). There's a very large difference. I haven't heard of anyone having problems with carbon (C). I've heard a lot about supposed increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) supposedly causing global warming. All known life has carbon (C) as the most important component to it's molecular structure. Carbon dioxide (CO2), however, is necessary for plant life, which is at the bottom of our food chain. Carbon dioxide (CO2) makes up a very tiny percentage (0.036% to 0.039%) of our atmosphere, even after all the carbon dioxide (CO2) added to the atmosphere from humans and their tools. Now I suspect this extra carbon dioxide (CO2) and possible increase in temperature is good for plant life, which is in turn good for us. However, there are also weather concerns related to "global warming", though I don't know how concerned we should be about them. Too much carbon dioxide (CO2) is bad for humans, but I think the amount is significantly higher than what is currently in our atmosphere (in the area of 1% you start to see effects such as drowsiness after prolonged exposure, at 8% it causes headache, sweating, dim vision, tremor and loss of consciousness after exposure for between five and ten minutes...see wikipedia).

But the politicians main concern is global warming. So now they are favoring carbon dioxide (CO2) reducing regulations and financial incentives in attempt to basically control the weather. Most likely the government will be incapable of achieving whatever levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) it thinks is "good" without side-effects. There's also a risk of over-shooting and lowering carbon dioxide (CO2) levels to dangerously low levels, suffocating plant life, leading to food shortages (practically everything we eat is either a plant, or itself eats plants...I'm not sure how fungus (mushrooms) fit into everything, though, but I seriously doubt they provide all the nutrition humans need).

So no, I seriously don't think they're talking about carbon (C), but rather carbon dioxide (CO2). Whether they're talking about "reducing carbon", it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with reducing you.

That must be why they discuss 'carbon tax'...

I'm just bringing it up for discussion, so welcome.

You seem to have bought into this global warming... oh, I'm sorry.... it's global climate change now, right?

That's because they forgot that many of us who lived through the 70's were already exposed to this BS still remember! Remember "The Coming Ice Age"? Remember the scare tactics they deployed back then? They hope you don't so I try to remind people.

If a tactic works, you are certain to see it again. They passed the 'ecology based' bill back then. They know the scare tactics work. They barely put a new face on it and trotted out the same crap four decades later. Now instead of the next ice age, they pushed the 'global warming' scam.

Everyone my aged guffawed when we first heard it. Couldn't believe they would try the same thing again. But there are a lot more people who don't remember.

So your hair-splitting, word-mincing tactics don't move me. A BS story is a BS story no matter when it was dated.

So, I'll stick by my statement. However you slice is, this sort of thinking will not benefit the people. It was never meant to. It was meant to make the life you've come to know unmaintainable. The elite will simply pay their 'carbon tax' and continue as they have been. Al Gore won't give up his jet or his 20K square foot home... but you won't be able to put gas in your car or keep your heat on.

That's what it's all about.

Remember, when they talk of reducing 'carbon footprints'... you've got two.

How long before they tell us that different races have more

carbon, or that men have more than women, etc. Just to add another group into the mix to be done away with.

Yep, and worms

In that case, my carbon is only rented....

It should be a complete write off!

Excellent

Wow, thanks

I think you nailed it. This is definitely their population problem remedy. Yikes!
