Oregonian: Bottom Line on Global Warming is Economy

| Tuesday October 25th, 2005 | 1 Comment

oregonian.gifAn editorial in yesterday’s Oregonian sums it up nicely: “If you care about jobs, the economists say, you better care about climate change.”
The editorial is exactly the kind of well argued news I’d like to see in papers across the country. It cites a new report by 50 Northwest scientists stating that unchecked global warming is an imminent threat to the Oregon economy. The ironic point is that many in the legislature who promise concern about economy and business are the same who dismiss global warming as irrelevant.

    The U.S. government wont do anything until they can figure out how to tax it.
    They may soon do so,,following in the footsteps of Japan,,who now is going to institute a tax to combat global warming.240,000 yen per person per year.
    For the life of me,I cant figure how a tax will stop global warming amd its consequences.
    Higher taxes didnt stop smokers,didnt slow down the use of gasoline,did not stop power plants from produceing electric curent,,,property taxes did not slow down the houseing industry,,
    But I did notice ,, when airplanes were grounded after 911,,the air quality improved,the skies were again clear,and a deep blue,for a few months,,,maybe it’s the increased air traffic that is to blame,,
