A fool’s errand: Al Gore’s $15 trillion carbon tax | The Liberty Conservative:
"Al Gore wants to reverse modernity and save the world from itself through an elimination of its fossil-fuel-based energy system.
During the final week of April, his newly created Energy Transitions Commission released a document setting forth a fool’s errand pathway to “decarbonize” the world’s energy system.
If you scroll through the verbiage surrounding the document, you will find the core policy recommendation is a massive, punishing carbon tax.
