View Full Version : Time to tax nature!!

Check this out - there is a massive release of toxic gasses which man is being taxed on. We need to tax nature for "her" attack on the environment. This would probably add on the charge of tax evasion.

Since the EPA has determined that the CO2 we exhale is a pollutant, I'm waiting for the executive order banning breathing :ugh:

Don't give dangerous ideas to the morons in charge....

The melting of the permafrost is a consequence of warmer temperatures. The release of CO2 and Methane (CH4) from the permafrost is a foreseen result of warmer temperatures.

Rather than tax it, which is just silly, serious efforts need to be made to minimise, or reverse, warming temperatures. Your children and grandchildren will thank you for it.

Permafrost makes up approximately 24% of the land mass in the Northern Hemisphere.

It would be more logical to reduce the numbers of children and grandchildren being produced.

It would be more logical, immediate and humane to ban dogs and do something unspeakable to cats.

Its about the size of a small quarry. Probably a good place to dump all the teslas in a few years

Funny, I had a premonition just this morning that the clowns will move to tax oxygen in the coming years.

And when you exceed your lifetime quota, that's it, they'll cut you off. :sad:

Captain Dart is right. Getting rid of every dog and cat wouldn't make that much difference, but getting away from people having more than two children is the only real hope. At some stage, the increased population will have nothing to eat.....

We could do far more replanting and controlling the rain forests
We could do more developing plants that can survive low rainfall areas as well as irrigating other areas of the world
As a pilot I have seen vast areas of the world devoid of greenery which more resemble the surface of some dried out distant planet
