And who is going to manage the funds from this "global tax" ? The U.N??
How will these funds be spent and what on? How will it be distributed evenly around the planet? I can see this being rorted and pillaged and funds
going missing and to finance things it wasn't intended to. It doesn't take Mystic Meg to be able to see where this will go.
I totally agree with the poster who said that paying a "tax" is not going to stop natural disasters. The ice age killed off the dinosaurs a long
time before man even walked on the earth. If that natural weather pattern happened today, we'd all be blamed for it.
Archeologists and Geologists have proven that Droughts have come and gone for thousands of years. Tsunamis were recorded in the bible. Remember the
great flood that covered the earth and Noahs Ark?? Oh dear, rising ocean levels have been going on for at least 2,000 years. Long before
industrialisation and coal burning.
No one is saying that global warming (or Climate Change as it's now being called as it's no longer scientifically correct as different parts of the
globe are experiencing different climatic changes just not warming.) isn't a reality. Of course it is and it's been happening since the beginning of
I just don't think that throwing money at climate change is going to stop it. Not unless $$$$ is now God himself.
