Democrats’ Carbon Border Tax Would Lead to Higher Costs for Americans

by Jordan McGillis
The American Spectator

“Fundamentally, a carbon border tax is a mechanism by which a government raises prices for importers on goods made with affordable, carbon-based energy in other countries. Facing new costs themselves, those importers inevitably pass on higher prices to the rest of us. The plan Democrats introduced Monday includes new taxes on imports of petroleum, natural gas, and coal but also on cement, iron, steel, and aluminum — industrial staples the prices of which factor into countless goods Americans buy each day. The New York Times reports that such products make up 12 percent of all imports to the United States,” according to The American Spectator.

Another Biden Administration eco-con

“Via yet another decree (Executive Order 14008), President Biden has instructed government agencies to ‘permanently protect’ at least 30% of all US lands and waters by 2030. This ’30 X 30 Plan’ appears to presume that any areas not designated as park, refuge or wilderness are not ‘protected,’ even though the vast majority of federal lands are already effectively off limits to mining, drilling, timber harvesting and even grazing, by virtue of policies heavily tilted toward preservation and against any development,” according to CFACT.

The Wall Street Journal

“The plan also aims to project the bloc’s stance on slashing emissions abroad by imposing the world’s first tax on imports based on the greenhouse gases emitted to make them. The move is contentious as countries prepare to convene at a climate summit in November in Glasgow, Scotland, where the U.S. and Europe want to convince China and poorer countries to make ambitious new pledges to cut emissions,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Here Come the Climate Protectionists

by The Editorial Board
The Wall Street Journal

“This is an admission that the European Union’s emissions-trading scheme (ETS) is bad for the economy. European companies are less competitive because they have to pay for their emissions and foreign companies don’t. Environmentalists say the ETS encourages companies to send production offshore to avoid the ETS, which greens call “carbon leakage” and most people would call common sense. The CBAM is intended to level the playing field, at least within the European market,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Putting Climate Models On Trial

by Editorial Board
Issues and Insights

“It’s hot. A number of North American cities have set record-high temperatures. But this is summer and that’s not indisputable evidence that man’s use of fossil fuels is overheating the planet. No matter what the Democrats say, how much the media nag, and how loudly zealots screech, the issue is not settled. There’s still enough doubt about the entire enterprise to fill the yawning gap between Earth and some far-away galaxy,” according to Issues and Insights.

ABC News is Wrong, the Western U.S. Is Not Suffering from a Climate Change Induced “Megadrought”

by H. Sterling Burnett
Climate Realism

“Although drought conditions have persisted for a couple of years now across portions of the Western United States, droughts in the dry West are common and research shows much larger, longer-term droughts have occurred there historically. Because current conditions are not outside the historic records of drought, there is no evidence human greenhouse gas emissions are contributing the current drought,” according to Climate Realism.
