The taxes are for finding solutions.
No they are not. It's to subsidize the pet flavor of alternative energy of the month. That and off-shoring manufacturing is how it has been used everywhere it has been implemented.
No one is sitting around and finding solutions for nothing. You find a solution because you figure it is cheaper than paying the tax.
Yes, you create artificial hardships until the people bitch loud enough for someone to do something about it. Great concept there, except for the concept in and of itself. Like I said previously, if the governments who are worried about it would actually do the research themselves and then make the tech available as it is discovered and/or implemented by regulation when it is feasible, it can all be fixed without creating hardships on the populace. Except this isn't about a fix, it's a political solution about power and control over people.
The rest of your post is simply idiotic unscientific phantasy, or science fiction.
No more so than the entirety of your post. Or are you admitting that science will not find the answer to alternative energy and it is just wishful thinking for those of us who think some honest research would go a long way?
We as well could have cold fusion and hot fusion tomorrow. That is as likely as finding an economic industrial scale process to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
You could get AIDs or Ebola tomorrow and die for all we know. You not getting it is just as much fantasy as you getting it. No one can predict the future. The best we can do is assess the likelihood and take steps to either avoid it or encourage it. You sound like you want nothing to do with a future where we do not need to oppressively tax people, restrict their behaviors while causing hardships in the process. Perhaps you are in it for other reasons?
Growth is not restricted.CO2 production is.
Yes, and no reliable and efficient form of energy exists on the scales in use that does not produce Co2 (exempt Nuclear but that too has it's booger man). So yes, while you are technically right just as the idiots who say a square peg fits into a round hole when everyone paying attention knows its not supposed to.
LThat s a no brainer ... no idea why you believe it is super easy to remove CO2 (at some point in the future, when it is probably to late) from the atmosphere but it is not possible to have an economy that uses less energy. Hint: Europe already is showcasing it. It is possible, and it is rather simple.
Actually, no Europe is not. They are exporting their Co2 production to China and India where imports from them have increased over 10 fold and Europe is facing de-industrialization issues not only with those two countries but with former soviet countries who have no restrictions. The only thing Europe is showcasing is how to export Co2 production and tank their economies.
