Al Gore Proposes Trillion+ Tax Hike to "End" Use of Fossil Fuels for Electricity in Ten Years

Goracle.jpg

What a stupid fucking douche.

"Our dangerous reliance on carbon-based fuels is at the core of all these problems – economic, environmental, national security," Gore said. "The answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels."

...

Despite winning the popular vote against George Bush in the 2000 presidential election [I'm sorry-- how is that relevant?], Gore has displayed no interest in returning to politics.

...

He shied away from specifics during the speech, not mentioning the trillion-dollar price tag of ending carbon-based electricity. Instead, Gore urged the US to institute a carbon tax that could be offset by reducing the payroll tax on employers.

"We should tax what we burn, not what we earn," he said.

Underpinning Gore's remarks, however, was a finely tuned sense of the economic anxiety that dominates American life 13 weeks before the next presidential election. He observed that the environmental, fiscal, and national-security dangers facing the country would be eliminated by a conversion to clean energy.

Finely-tuned sense. Right. He's proposing to make energy cost even more when its price is currently skyrocketing and edging the world towards a global recession.

Well, that's al-Guardian for you.
