The global warming extremists who advocate for a carbon tax to save the planet fail to realize that the successful implementation and administration of it will last as long as a sand castle in front of a tidal wave.
A carbon tax is going to reduce the standard of living for all who pay it and it’s not going to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere one bit.
Carbon tax initiatives, such as the recently passed Washington state Senate Bill 5126, are designed to force industries and companies like refineries, gas utilities and Boeing to reduce their carbon emissions or to pay for the right to release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Sounds great right?
Well as they say, the devil is in the details. (READ Washington State carbon tax article)
