Global Taxes

It’s a prospect that will have greedy UN bureaucrats salivating; taxation on an international level.

( – Prompting warnings of a “global governance” push, the  United Nations released a report Thursday proposing mechanisms  including a global carbon tax, currency transaction tax and a  “billionaire’s tax,” to finance development and global needs such as  combating climate change.

The U.N. World Economic and Social Survey (WESS) says such taxes  could raise more than $400 billion a year, at a time when donor  countries are unwilling or unable – “in the midst of difficult financial  times” – to maintain the levels of development aid necessary.

A key idea in the founding of the United States of America was “no taxation without representation”. Where is the representation for the people of the world? We don’t vote for these UN fat cats. And the thing about global taxes is, you can’t escape them. There is no other planet to flee to (save for Bob Brown’s fantasies).

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?
