These countries have some form of #carbontax since the '90s or 2008 in🇨🇭. 🇸🇪now at €115/t.
If your country is discussing carbon pricing bc narrow-minded economists pray to the God of Voluntarism, stop listening. If at all, it's not working fast enough.globalcarbonatlas.org/en/CO2-emissio…
More on EU countries with carbon pricing and their current price per tonne of CO2: industriemagazin.at/a/in-elf-laend… The range in old EU states is from €23 in Denmark, to, among others, 52€ in Norway, 65€ in Finland, €86 in Switzerland to €115 in Sweden.

With tiny global budgets left, how wd we scale up the price fast enough to get an educational effect on consumers and producers? Economists assume abundance, not Paris-compatible budgets for WELL below 2˚and #Equity

Gracias por la mención @edgarsigler, vamos a aclararle a @soyzen como está el rollo del #IEPS2021 en #Gasolinas dentro del marco del conocido como #Gasolinazo2021 que se plantea en el #PEF2021
Abri Hilo 🧵
Consideraciones:
1. El #IEPS es un impuesto al consumo, en el caso de las #Gasolinas #Diésel se grava en dos momentos:
a. En el internamiento aduanal, en el caso de producto importado, lo declara el importador y lo paga el comercializador/distribuidor, se traslada al resto.
b. En la salida de la Refinería, en el caso de productos de origen nacional, el fabricante lo declara y lo paga el adquirente, se traslada al resto de la cadena.

2. Estas operaciones, se les conoce como Venta de Primera Mano (VPM), las cuales, el precio se determina...

See thread exposing how these “bushfires” are really just crimes against humanity, nature, and the ecosystem. Is the establishment using them to justify more taxes, cause massive disturbance in our economy, farming, and environment? Apparently a “trillion $ opportunity” for some!

#FollowTheMoney of the #GreenScam 👇

Goldman Sachs is shilling for the implementation of a #CarbonTax.

Democrats and Presidential candidates such as Biden, Buttigieg, and Andrew YANG, some RINOs, and many leftists also want some form of carbon tax from the middle class.
#Warren2020 Elizabeth Warren also supports Goldman Sachs’ carbon tax plan.

The same #ElizabethWarren who criticizes Goldman Sachs and their money supports making Goldman Sachs richer.

Interlude #2: Next episode by Dr Dre featuring Snoop Dogg. '2001' is a perfect album from start to finish. open.spotify.com/track/4LwU4Vp6…
Pre-911 I'd not gotten into History or Geopolitics much. I didn't feel like Nations & how they ran themselves would hold many surprises. Expect folks creating a broken/backwards system to themselves be broken/backwards. #911 reminded humans how quickly this stuff can matter /23
End of the day on 911 I felt like I all I knew for sure was America was about to smoke somebody, maybe a whole bunch of somebodies & that it would be nice to know who actually did it & why. What else can you do? You wait for the President to speak. Yeah. *That* guy. /24

Thread: This article from amazing @sundaybusiness has bothered me all day. It's a very "glass more than half full" portrayal of the climate crisis that's unbecoming of a country's leader when so many are already suffering from #climatechange IMHO. So, I'm exploring the issue...1

@sundaybusiness "...it’s warmer and people need less heating, and it also means fewer deaths as a result of cold weather” While there are more downsides than benefits, the upsides are there, he added..It’s interesting that when you do look at those things, that there is a ledger, and there are 2

1. Before he was elected, @FordNation promised he would see the Basic Income Pilot through...

Once elected, he killed it.

Before the #Elxn43 vote was held, he said he wouldn't fight the #CarbonTax in court if the @CPC_HQ lost.

He's going ahead with it anyway

#cdnpoli #ONpoli
2. Before the #Elxn43 vote was held, NB Premier @BlaineHiggs he said he wouldn't fight the #CarbonTax in court if the @CPC_HQ lost.

While he will go ahead with a Made in NB carbon pricing scheme, he is still involved in the court case.

#NBPoli #CdnPoli
3. Before he was elected, AB Premier @JKenney promised cuts wouldn't go beyond a certain point and that he'd respect city charters.

He waited until the #Elxn43 vote was held to drop a buget in which he betrayed those promises and many more.

Something to remember next time someone complains about a 5c/L #CarbonTax:

⛽️ Canada has THE CHEAPEST gas of any developed country, after the U.S.🥈
🚙💨 And we drive THE LEAST fuel efficient vehicles of any country 🥇

bit.ly/2qjP07p

#cdnpoli #elxn43
❄️ Yes, we live in a cold climate, but similar countries 🇸🇪🇮🇸🇫🇮 get by with more efficient vehicles.
🛣 Yes, we are a spread out country, and that should give MORE of an incentive for fuel efficiency.
🏘 And most of us live in cities/suburbs where a small car should suffice.
🚧🚨 Yes, larger vehicles are safer for their drivers, but only if in a collision with a smaller vehicle.
🏁 💪This leads to an “arms race” of vehicle size, with larger and larger becoming the norm.

Russia’s Uranium One is buying a majority stake in Canada’s Wealth Minerals lithium project in Chile.

Lithium is one of the minerals on the Trump admin’s list of mineral commodities that are critical to the economy and national security of the US.
Here’s the full list of critical minerals published due to a Trump Executive order in May, 2018. It would be a critical situation for us if the supply chains of these minerals were disrupted. #China already has a big leg up and Russia is following.

usgs.gov/news/interior-…
Lithium is used primarily in batteries, such as those in electric cars and for solar panel use.

Notice how this goes right back to the #GreenScam that Democrats are pushing and in which Russia and China are also involved.

Did you know: The cornerstone principle of the global warming theory, anthropogenic global warming (AGW), is built on the premise that significant increases of modern era human-induced CO2 emissions have acted to unnaturally warm Earth’s atmosphere #ThursdayThoughts Cont..
But It is scientifically impossible to distinguish the difference between volcanic CO2 and human-induced CO2.. So how did they Establish this AGW? #ThursdayThoughts
They used Terrance Gerlach’s volcanic CO2 calculation which is based on just 7 actively erupting land volcanoes and three actively erupting ocean floor hydrothermal vents. #ThursdayThoughts

THREAD: In a new study in @nature we present a way to avoid the bias that burdens future generations and the risky strategies that current #climate change mitigation pathways suffer from.

A #climatetwitter explainer

#Fridays4Future #ClimateStrike #ParisAgreement

(1/n)
Existing #ClimateChange scenarios focus on reaching a target in 2100

but by doing so weirdly suggest that the best way to achieve a #climate target is to delay action first, miss it over the next decades, and then to try to make up for it later

(2/n)
This puts put a disproportionate burden on future generations, who:
-will suffer higher #climate impacts in their lives
-are burdened with later cleaning up the mess by actively pulling #CO2 out of the air

This strategy is very risky and can be avoided

Lord James of Blackheath has been threatened with the police, told to retract the comments he made in the House of Lords on EU Defence Union, and is facing demands to resign and remain silent on the issue from now on.

"European Union Defence plans are associated with the eventual formation of a European Federal State. Under the current system of unaccountable governance, an unelected oligarchy. A nation state that contracts out its defence has ceased to be."

1/7 One of the zaniest #carbontax stories I've seen yet

Now, any cabinet featuring the likes of Seamus O'Regan & Maryam Monsef will have competition at the bottom of the talent pyramid

But McKenna's botching of the carbon tax file is something special

theglobeandmail.com/politics/artic…
2/7 We ALL knew McKenna was lying/unserious when she said there was no plan to raise carbon tax over $50/tonne

When it comes to carbon taxes there has always been a Liberal hidden agenda

But McKenna was so excited to break this promise, she couldn't wait for after Election Day
3/7 The fact is that - if saving the planet is the REAL goal -- the current Nordhaus-based modelling that the IPCC relies on requires a carbon tax of AT LEAST $135 per tonne.

That's over 25 cents/litre in NEW tax gas taxes. At minimum. IPCC says tax could go into the $1,000s!

It's more than a little ironic that @andrewscheer would claim @JustinTrudeau & the Liberals just make stuff up given there's a veritable treasure trove of evidence that it's EXACTLY what he & his party do DAILY. This CANNOT continue to go unchallenged! #cdnpoli #cdnmedia #thread
Just a short while ago, I dissented a 3-tweet thread from his Comms Director that contained multiple falsehoods. #cdnpoli

Here's a parliament hill journo calling out one of your MANY falsehoods. #cdnpoli #cdnmedia

Middle-class demolishing Senators Coons and Feinstein, oops ChiFi (especially since #China is in on this) are going to introduce a #CarbonTax in yet another push to force their #GreenScam upon us all.

As always, right in step with China’s 2050 world domination plan.
Note the article says the #CarbonTax is also supported by Republicans such as former Secretaries of State James Baker and George Shultz.

Well, here’s some digging into them and their SCAM from a previous thread I did:

They’re all in cahoots with each other: The UN, the EU, #Democrats, and #China.

Note how they described it as a money making opportunity.

Some of them are companies that would stand to make MAJOR $ Profits for forcing this crap on everyone and some of them, like Shell, are literally in cahoots with #Russia regarding #ClimateChange.

Shell's been lobbying for a #CarbonTax and is partnered with Russia's #Gazprom.
And Russia, who has also been FUNDING many of the #ClimateChange and #GlobalWarming protests, would love nothing more than the US, their major oil competitor, to stop our dependence on oil.

Of course, the Democrat House has since deleted or moved this document, but here's a thread on it, thanks to @TheChiIIum

Ahh... here's yet another link to the Democrats #GreenScam and #China.

#NorthCarolina Democrat congressional candidate Dan McCready invested in Strata Solar to build solar farms in North Carolina and guess who Strata works with? None other than #Huawei.

#FollowTheMoney
Hypocrite Dan McCready is trying to FOOL PEOPLE into believing he wants to be tough on China, but don't fall for it.

He touted his investments in his own campaign ads in the past.

dailycaller.com/2019/05/28/dan…
This is just what I've been looking for #GreenScam "investment funds."

Dan McCready, along with partner Rye Barcott, a "green" investment company called Double Time Capital in 2013.

Now there are also #Republicans, along with some #BigOil cos that are lobbying for a Carbon TAX and pushing the #GreenScam.

Americans for Carbon Dividends, led by former #GOP Secretaries of State James Baker III and George Shultz & former GOP Rep. Ryan Costello Of PA.
This #GreenScam has been pushed by the EU and UN, and of course #China is also invoked. They all invested in this stuff already, and She’ll described as a “new business opportunity.”

Shell claims it would rely on 3rd party auditors after being asked about lack of transparency and fraud.

LOL....Who? The likes of auditors such Deloitte, KPMB, etc who did such a great job with things such as #1MDB that they are now being investigated?

So you want to change the world for the better?
A Saskatchewan version:
Step 1: turn 18 because you can't vote otherwise. Spend the first 18 years of your life without political influence unless you're an unusual character involved in party politics, student council and activism.
If you're not 18 this year, you're probably too late to take the lazy vote-only route. You have to take the lead like Greta.
Step 2, you write the local newspaper to express your concerns about there being less than #ElevenYears left to make at least 6.5% / year reductions to carbon emissions if we want to have a hope of surviving the climate crisis.
Your edited letter appears next to a columnist

There's a seriously big turnout for climatologist David Phillips tonight at @NLGEOCENTRE. Let's hope he does some real talk on #climatechange. He's already given a pitch for #yyt + #windpower
Plenty of chuckles from the crowd about our crummy weather (wettest... windiest... etc) stats #nlwx
David talks about the transition
1) global warming
2) climate change
What's next? 3) atmospheric terrorism

Your plan is to make life expensive. There has never been a single tax in history, that when imposed on its population, has made life more affordable...not one. #cdnpoli
Furthermore, your "climate" plan is to give tax dollars to multimillion $$ companies. See @cathmckenna latest spending announcement. Meanwhile the price of gas, diesel, jet fuel as well as home, business and commercial heating all go up. #cdnpoli
Exactly how does taking more $$ from people make life more affordable? It doesn't. It didn't work in BC with their carbon tax...it's not working in Alberta, and it certainly won't work nationwide. #cdnpoli

Has anyone read the "Economists' Statement on Carbon Dividends"? I'll paste it here. About 30 Nobel Laureate economists, 4 former Chairs of the Federal Reserve and 15 former Chairs of the Council of Economic Advisers have signed it this in favour of "#carbontax" (1)
Economists' Statement on Carbon Dividends

Global climate change is a serious problem calling for immediate national action. Guided by sound economic principles, we are united in the following policy recommendations. (2)
I. A carbon tax offers the most cost-effective lever to reduce carbon emissions at the scale and speed that is necessary. (3)
