Think about this ..."five million deaths occur each year from air pollution, hunger and disease."
Is it true? Yes. Is it accurate? Not really.
This is a true statement, up to a point. More accurately, it could be stated that 10 percent of annual deaths worldwide are blamed on a combination
of air pollution, hunger and disease. According to WHO, pollution causes 2 million PREMATURE deaths annually outdoors. (800,000 of those are from
indoor pollution, not fossil fuels)
What kills the other 98% prematurely? They really don't seem to care. Do they?
Why are we NOT proposing a multi-trillion dollar taxation scheme that will destroy economies and cause massive hunger in order to stave off the OTHER
98% of premature deaths????
Maybe the 40-50 million annually aborted babies were considered premature deaths. I don't know, but a billion dollars in birth control every year
would save one billion dead people over the next two decades. The money saved on abortions would cover the cost of prevention ten times over.
What's that? That's not the point? They don't CARE about 50,000,000 dead babies a year?
A billion dead babies in the next twenty years and they don't mind at all?
Then why do they care about a few million a year from pollution?
All right let's look at another assertion.
"Climate is changing."
This is a fact.
One problem, we didn't start it, and we can't stop it.
A trillion years of extremely radical climate change will not be thwarted by humans.
The notion that we can stop the earth from changing is hubris.
Mount Pinatubo put more greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere in a week than mankind has in recorded history. Hundreds of active volcanoes continue to
do so annually. That pesky star only eight light minutes away from your front door might have a few things to say about your local weather as well.
Face it, the planet will bulldoze any effort humanity makes to "stop it" from changing.
Might as well face the truth, we must adapt to the changing environment and quit whining. Use a little money now to change ourselves and learn to live
with our planet instead of taxing everyone straight to hell in order to "stop" something that is unstoppable.
Look at the real numbers and the real priorities. It's not about saving lives or "saving" the planet.
It's about taxing your very existence. You and every child, grand child and great grand child you will ever have.
Beyond that, the empire will likely be a one world dictatorship under a common currency that will tax you for exhaling co2 until you can no longer
pay. Then they will terminate you as a useless commodity. You will no longer be fired from your job. You will simply be aborted.
Yeah buddy. Go ahead and push that carbon tax. Let the rest of the world charge you a mint for having the temerity to breathe. Then they will kill you
for not being able to support yourself.
Don't believe me? Don't think government would be so cruel and uncaring as to kill you for being unwanted?
50,000,000 dead babies a year can't be wrong.
