Would you approve of the institution of a carbon tax on all greenhouse gas emissions?

No. It makes no difference. The correlation for CC is solar activity not greenhouse gasses.

You mean shift what little pieces of manufacturing we have left in this control entirely overseas? Sounds like a great way for America's unskilled and low skill laborers to die even quicker.

No, because turning pollution into a profit-making government side hustle does not do anything to reduce or eliminate the pollution. Prohibit the pollution, find another side hustle, and be happy.

Also, how would they determine how much tax to impose?

Car manufacturer emission reports? They lie. Look at VW.

Carbon reading machines? At what cost?

Arbitrary number pulled out of some Dem’s ass? Look at AOC.

Hire carbon cops and give them a new agency: F.A.G.S - Fog, Air, and Greenhouse Services, and raise more taxes to pay them to collect on another tax?

The point I’m making is that if one thinks they’re solving one issue with one tax, you’re actually creating a million more and stealing money in the process.

People who voted yes still live with their parents.

If this passes, I want to let a major tuba fart blow on the tv announcement (probably Roth someone like AOC, Newsom or Pelosi there) and watch what happens if they try to give me a ticket.

I might support it if the tax collected was used for the purpose of reducing the greenhouse gasses.

Tax is theft, so no.

On corporations, probably. Not on individuals.

You’re crazy if you think the corporations will pay it. Anytime a Corp has to pay for something the cost gets passed down to the consumer. The middle class gets screwed every time.

Then customers turn back towards small businesses and corporations lose their grip on the markets.
Oh no.

NOT NO...HELL NO! The biggest fraud that has been perpetrated on Americans & around the world. They can’t even get the weather right, yet we’re supposed to believe the world is going to end in 12 years.

I wouldn't oppose it, but I think it's futile, and I certainly wouldn't support it.
