That the übermoonbat and ultrastatist Michael Bloomberg would endorse the personification of left-wing lunacy and malignant bloated government is hardly surprising (except to idiots). Even so, his main justification is alarming.
Insanely, Bloomberg blames the global warming hoax for Hurricane Sandy, oblivious to the established scientific fact that there has been no global warming for the past 16 years.
When hurricanes hit pre-Columbian Mexico, Aztec priests no doubt responded by calling for still more innocent victims to have their hearts torn out to appease evil gods. Bloomberg’s response is the modern corollary; he wants to further cripple the economy as a sacrifice to Gaia.
Bloomberg has this much right: Obama is the man for that job. Even with supermajorities in the House and Senate, Obama was unable to deliver the coup de grâce to the economy via insane Cap & Trade legislation; so he has been gradually implementing it through the back door. This is what we can look forward to in a second Obama term:
A major tax study currently being sponsored by the U.S. Treasury will give environmental activists a powerful new weapon in their campaign to alter the entire American economic and social landscape in the name of halting “climate change” — including the possible levying of new carbon taxes.
That’s why they used to call it Cap & Tax.
Under the bland title of Effects of Provisions in the Internal Revenue Code on Greenhouse Gas Emissions, the $1.5 million study is being carried out under the auspices of the National Academy of Science (NAS). Originally planned to take two years, the ambitious project aims to take an inventory of the U.S. tax code in terms of the effects of its most important provisions on the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions — a huge and complicated exercise in environmental and economic modelling.
A planned economy micromanaged by authoritarian bureaucrats worked so well in the Soviet Union, why not try it here? What only lunatics would vote for can be imposed through the tax code.
In Russia, it took 70 years for “economic modeling” to result in total collapse. Here it won’t take more than a decade, because the goal is not to increase production but to reduce it in the name of antihuman environmentalist ideology — with Mayor Bloomberg’s blessings.
