“I do believe that climate change is occurring. I do believe that it is man-caused,” Johnson said.
To address climate change, Johnson said he believes “that there can be and is a free-market approach to climate change.”
That would include a fee — not a tax, he said — placed on carbon. Such a fee would make pollutants bear a market cost.
“We as human beings want to see carbon emissions reduced
significantly,” but at the same time, he says the United States is only
“16 percent of the (global) load” of carbon, and “I don’t want to do
anything that harms jobs.”
Great. The Stupid Party nominated a egomaniac crony-capitalist I don't like or trust, the Evil Party nominated a corrupt, lies-by-reflex politician who thinks the law applies to other people, and the (supposed) Libertarians nominate a guy who keeps coming out with crap like this.*
At this point, whoever wins I'm leaning toward a 'small meteor strike during the first time the winner addresses Congress.
*Not worth mentioning the Stali- excuse me, Green Party
