Climate Change Tax to Curtail Travel, Increase Costs of Trade

President Obama, always striving to help the economy and never one to trouble himself with constitutional limits on his authority, apparently has a team of negotiators at the United Nations Climate Change Conference looking to create a new tax on foreign travel and foreign currency transactions. The taxes, purposed to pay for a so-called "Green Climate Fund," were cleverly designed to fall disproportionately hard on American travellers and businesses.

The information comes from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a group known to be skeptical of the UN position on global warming which has been observing the goings on at the latest UN meeting.
Negotiators at the conference are considering "a new tax on every foreign currency transaction in the world. Every time you travel abroad, you'll have to pay a climate tax," explains CFACT, the group that released the "Climategate" emails. "More importantly, every time we import goods, every time we export our fine products (think jobs) we will do so with a climate tax skimming off the top."
Conveniently European countries would escape much of the tax burden, as "transactions within the Eurozone won't have to pay this new tax."

Obama is disposed to implementing this kind of tax in lieu of a full climate treaty, which would require congressional approval.
"We have learned that while many have discounted this conference, knowing that a full climate treaty is difficult to achieve especially with a U.S. Senate that will not vote to ratify. Obama and his fellow climate travelers are working around the Senate and planning to stick America with the bill."


  1. Obama has been ramping up executive power. It will be interesting to see the response when it is used to just as easily undo his policies (though, of course, not without outcry from the MSM). Live by the sword, die by the sword.

  2. If the Republican can't use this as a rallying cry to stop the insanity, they don't deserve our support and it's all over for us as a Nation. The UN has to be emasculated immediately by a withdrawal of all US support and sending the buggers packing. Europe put off its demise another month or two with those last minute deals that were cut. Time to let them know the rope is cut so that they won't be expecting any support when they try and drag us down with them. There aren't $Trillions to be had in phony climate schemes. They've already bled us dry with our support of the Euro since its inception ( as well as its predecessor, the ECU.)
