Obama is killig two birds with one stone

Not only is he drumming up hatred for Iran, he's drumming up hatred for fossil fuels, oil in particular. It's about extorting huge subsidies from American taxpayers/cosumers to fund expensive alternative energy policies that we don't need. Exxon Mobil, Chevron, BP (They've changed their name to Beyond Petroleum), General Electric, etc., all support a carbon tax. It seems counter intuitive that Big Oil would want a carbon tax but in the video below, the CEO of Exxon says a CO2 tax will be used to fund Exxon's green energy programs. This demonstrates the fact that multinationals have the power to tax while they pay little or no taxes. Gov't revenues from a carbon tax will flow into the R&D divisions of monopolistic energy companies who will then monopolize so called clean energy.
