    climate change is a double edge sword.. many animal species may go extinct, but the warmer climates also favors other species... but that does not mean we shouldnt do something to try to make it more sustainable...

    "It’s framed even in the FAQ as creating conditions where ‘air travel stops becoming necessary’ because alternatives are available -- not limiting or ending air travel"

    What's the alternative? this was a nonsense bill

    It is not if a carbon tax is good or bad. It is all about what you do with the money. In Canada the politicians used the money to buy people’s votes, which as a byproduct encouraged consumption which generated more carbon. In the end the net benefit on the environment of the carbon tax set up this way was in the best scenario zero if not negative.If they would have done something to actually help the environment that would have been a completely different story...

    Changing policies in the U.S. would be amazing, but won't matter much unless China, India, Russia, Japan, and every other country that collectively pollutes ~30% of global emissions do something about it as well. ;

    If they don't agree for a tax... Let them cancel out the co2 emmissions buy buying some land and growing trees in them to equalize thier emmissions .. the sea can be used to make farms also just grow a plant that can survive on salt water and keep them at sea if you don't have land space.

    Just in case anyone is wondering, at 14:40 that dude does the weird poetry thing, and he talks about how farms will be the ones taking a hit. He's wrong. Areas with farmland have vastly reduced gas prices, the difference is where I live if the price is 139 cents per litre, in the closest area with high agricultural land, their gas prices are 124 cents per litre.

    Human caused climate change is a total hoax. Set to be the greatest rip-off in history. The real problem is too many people. You can go full Amish and you will have reduced your 'carbon footprint' by about 30%. As soon as your neighbor has another kid, there's another MINIMUM 60%... so all of your sacrifice was for nothing. And the kicker is... It doesn't fucking matter. Earth's temperature is affected teh greatest by the Sun's output, which should seem obvious to anyone who has gone outside during the day.

    the Planet doesn't need saving, it was't our pollution that made the Ice age and all that other horrible times right? the Planet is a living thing, we can't destroy it, we can only make life worse and harder for our selves, China has so much pollution that they have to wear masks in the street, Planet doesn't die, life just becomes that shity.

    I live in BC Canada, we had carbon pricing for over 10 years now, other than making cost of living higher and business less competitive it has done little else. It seems worked for first 5 years, but now it's just making things more expansive, because people's essential activities still needs to be done.

    • HyperOpticalSaint
      HyperOpticalSaint Pirms 10 dienām

      To add, BC is the first in Canada to have carbon pricing, it was only revenue natural(tax goes into rebate) in first few years, then goverment just take it like any other taxes.

    You are certifiably retarded if you think the green new deal is "good." AOC literally said the world is going to end in 12 years. Interesting how Oliver here doesn't show where the US ranks for carbon emissions and what country ranks at the top. It's China btw and they are doing nothing to reduce emissions and AOC doesn't seem to care about China whatsoever. John clearly supports another tax on people, what does he care, he can certainly afford it while most of us can't.

    Give me a free electric car that's as reliable as a Toyota and I'll be happy reduce the whole of my carbon footprint, until then I'm in college just barely keeping my head above the water. Quite frankly California just introduced a fuel tax and if my cost of living goes any higher at attempts to introduce "Carbon Tax" that hurt the working class we should maybe pull out some yellow jackets....

    Honestly, I was against the Green New Deal when it first came out, but now I'm warming up to it. I'm thinking that AOC was the wrong messenger because she's too polarizing and inexperienced. In order for anything like the Green New Deal to work on the future, it needs to be spearheaded by more popular, more seasoned people, or maybe just even more grounded people like Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Joe Kennedy III, etc.

    Solution to the cow/methane problem... stop feeding them corn,soybeans,and grains. Grass fed cows are carbon neutral. Oh but we can't do that because we subsidize those crops. Need to protect Monsanto profits.

    I honestly do not understand why taking care of climate change is even a debate. Even in the very, very, very slim off-chance that scientists are wrong like conservatives claim, what's the worst that can come from reducing emissions and moving to renewable energy? There's less pollution and our resources are more sustainable? Ohh the humanity! Whereas the consequences of NOT acting to stop climate change are literally the ruination of earth and the deaths of millions of people. I don't understand.
