I see people working very hard to make mankind less productive.
Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it on the islands from afar, and say, "He Who scattered Israel will gather them together and watch them as a shepherd his flock."
So far I don't see anyone thinking it's a good thing. My question is therefore, how is this sliding through governments, congress, parliaments etc around the globe and becoming legislation without so much as a whimper from the voting public? Are we so passive? ... like lambs to the slaughter? As I see it, this is going to change life for everyone by essentially putting a tax on the very air we breath and on life itself. How did it get this far so fast?
I read through parts of the act and it has draconian statements like "can seize private property..." and "if found guilty, will be unlawfully residing in [your own] home .." This is very serious stuff.
About the same way the Nurenburg laws did...
The same thing happened with out 'light bulb' legislation! Now some are saying the kind we will eventually be REQUIRED to burn may cost $59, $75 or more EACH!
I hate what America has become. And as America goes, so goes the rest of the world! But, we can't vote on anything until it is put on the ballot to be voted on. Meanwhile, they just go on and on, passing all kinds of ludicrous mandates! And, rest assured, some ARE going to get wealthy by all this. And it sure ain't you or me!
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
What's carbon tax?
Every temptation is of the devil, and every sin leads to death.
If the idea is to ultimately lower carbon in the atmosphere it would have to be universal to work. In this case, industrial powerhouses like China will continue to spue and profit while others go deeper and deeper into carbon debt.
Another economic tyrranny that should have little over-all affect on the atmosphere.
Most poorer nations have no resources other than coal, and that is often imported at great expense.
I know; I watch NOVA.

In Rep John Boehner own words from the clip: "... the most profound piece of legislation to come to this floor in 100 years ... and the Chairman has the audacity to drop a 300 plus page amendment in the hopper at 3.09 am this morning..."
What craziness is this!
Here is the actual footage:

1Jn 4:1 NKJV Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Been wondering what this is all going to cost the average household. From an article on the cage they estimate around $900 more per household per year. BUT ... that is only if the tax is calculated at $25-$30 / ton of carbon. It's pretty clear the intent is to settle at a figure of $50 or even $60 / ton eventually.
Cost to you: $2,000 / year extra on just living. Nice.
