Carbon Pricing is a sham and consumer complicity in global warming

Carbon pricing and cap and trade are a total sham. They merely allows the biggest offenders to sell their evil to the powerless and compradors. If you want to deal with climate change then you legislate against the military use of fossil fuels, limit the amount of flying all individuals, academics, corporate hacks, overnight delivery firms and politicians among others do, get rid of personal transportation, limit the trucking in of luxury items… The list goes on. It means you have to reign in capitalism and every consumer’s role in it (Yes I include all the evil I do in the above). Of course we know individuals will say “But I neeeeed my car.” Politicians will do nothing because of the lack of will by consumers to change their lifeways and because politicians are owned by the corps and their investors (including most of our pension funds).
