See the thing is, simply having a carbon tax as a solution makes it hard to swallow - it just looks like someone is trying to make a fast buck on the
back of this rather than actually dealing with the problem, which is something we are very used to seeing these days.
Now if it's a stalling Gulf Stream we are talking about, and I have heard this before, how does having another tax actually solve the problem? Do we
know why the Gulf Stream has/is stalling and can we do anything about it? If we can't then a tax is not a solution, unless spent on helping people
prepare/relocate and counteract any economical problems etc. that this might bring about.
Perhaps we should take a good hard look out our lifestyles as a global community, where we live, where the resources are and how we can use what we
have whilst having a minimal impact. I know that all the farmland and buildings that have replaced the forests does not help and tree roots help water
drain and prevents flooding. Too having lots of people living in high risk areas of flood, earthquake and drought is just storing up economic problems
as well as social/health when large populations become refugees of such disasters.
That said, if we are fast approaching an ice age or massive change of climate, which does tend to happen from time to time on planet Earth, then there
might be little we can do except buckle down for the ride and hope we get through it.
