Bill Maher: Save the Middle Class to Save the Climate

January 19, 2019

If you’ve been paying attention to the government shutdown, we’re learning a lot about just how close to the edge a lot of “middle class” Americans are, financially.

It’s hard to get people to think of the next hundred years when they’re just struggling to get thru the next month.

    Which, for the gazillionth time, is a reason why any carbon tax is the worst idea since unsliced bread.

    Disagree. In Oz, households received a subsidy to offset the price increase in price ’caused’ by the carbon tax. This how it is supposed to work. It was painless and popular, despite the screaming of recalcitrant old farts reported in the media. On attaining government, the right scrapped the tax but retained the subsidy for a year or two. Funny that. Still, large demonstrations occurred country wide when the tax was removed.

    Bill Maher’s commentary on air travel is interesting. He pines for the old days when he got comped on first class and he didn’t have to share the air space with the unwashed masses. Has he even considered that there might an extra carbon dioxide surcharge on all that luxury? Does he think batteries and cryogenic hydrogen are going to improve things any?
