New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke today before the Wall Street Journal CEO Council annual conference. According to WSJ, he told attendees that the U.S. needs to reduce its dependence on foreign oil, if “you want to stop sending your money to … terrorists.”
The answer, he said: “We need a carbon tax.”
Al Gore, among others, has been promoting a carbon tax based on bogus data showing carbon causes golbal warming. To my knowledge, Bloomberg is the first person to suggest a carbon tax as a way to battle terrorists.'
