Taxing The Rich Is The Only Way We Are Going To Save Earth, Here’s Why

Taxing The Rich Is The Only Way We Are Going To Save Earth, Here’s Why

The top 10% = 50% of emissions

If taxed down to a median income, emissions will go down 33% says Kevin Anderson.

If the top 33% are taxed down to a median income, I believe emissions will go 999%, and light years faster than anything done so far.

In the last 10 years, emission went up 10% and energy went up 15%.

In the next 10 years, they are projected to go up the same amount by BP.

Claire Fyson says we must reduce emissions 50% in 10 years to avoid 1.5 C.

Stefan Rahmstorf says we must reduce emission 100% in 20 years to avoid 2 C.

We have to do this because Runaway Hothouse Mass Extinction gets triggered between 1.5 and 2 C says Hans Schellnhuber.

COP 24 is nearly a quarter century old, and emissions are up 25% since it started tackling our emissions problem.

When do we admit failure? When the last breath is gasped?

Do you want to collapse without trying?

Yes, we are going to collapse sooner or later, so how about later?

All this talk about soil remediation and kelp farming won’t mean shit unless emissions drop like a rock.

And we have to drop our childish infatuation with fame and fortune like a hot rock.
