Proof That Carbon Taxes Work

Boulder’s carbon tax has been astonishingly effective.

I don’t think I have ever seen the pond frozen before Thanksgiving before.

I’m not convinced the cold weather is due to the carbon tax, however. More likely it is my red straw which caused the cold weather.

    There is no norm that the climate departs from or returns to.

    I think GSM has body-slammed CO2.

    When I read the headline I thought it was going to be satire. That someone was serious is really scary.

    And here we have the great truth: “…and brings in $1.8 million to the city’s coffers. …”

    That whole article is a wakeup call for anyone with Libertarian leanings.

      Jonathan Koehn: “The budget [for the tax] was built from the ground up. We knew what our revenue requirement was and we divvied that up and said here are the tax rates amongst the sectors that would result in that revenue coming in.”

    • MGJ says:

      It is a depressing thought that so many people with at least 12 and probably nearer 20 years of expensive education in government schools believe that wealth is created by taxation. Their own personal wealth may well be but this is not generalisable (not sure whether that is a real word)!

    And the ploy was so successful, it supplanted the real enemy…. https://phys.org/news/2019-10-devastating-impact-nitrogen-scientists.amp

      Phys.org must be getting in early with the April fools day pranks. They can’t be serious. As for the video, “Nitrogen is everywhere”. No s**t Sherlock! It makes up over 70% of the atmosphere.
      Reminds me of the old scam about pumping up you car tyres with nitrogen, to make them last longer.

      • Archie says:

        See, this is the problem with hoaxes like Climate Change, people stop understanding and taking real problems seriously. They aren’t talking about nitrogen in the atmosphere but nitrogen fertilizers on the ground. Nitrogen in water courses promotes plant growth and results in eutrophication of the water course.
        And yes, it is a problem.

        “Eutrophication, or hypertrophication, is when a body of water becomes overly enriched with minerals and nutrients which induce excessive growth of algae. This process may result in oxygen depletion of the water body. One example is an “algal bloom” or great increase of phytoplankton in a water body as a response to increased levels of nutrients. Eutrophication is often induced by the discharge of nitrate or phosphate-containing detergents, fertilizers, or sewage into an aquatic system.”

  5. Colorado Wellington says:

    The climate tax was well engineered by Boulder progressives.

    Colorado’s deplorable rednecks must freeze their asses off as a retribution for their Trump support.

  6. Logic n reason says:

    This confirms what we have suspected all along. Scare people and make them believe taxes are good for them. In other words keep taking the nasty medicine. The key point is made when he says 1.8 million dollars into the government coffers from carbon taxes. Talk about finding ways of skinning a cat.

  7. Disillusioned says:

    Both assertions are just as [il] logical as the other. But you’ve been more correct than they… so … … I’m going to go with the red straw hypothesis.

    Winter park open early!!! Yea
