A $600 fill-up?
When Democrats say America must "do something" about global warming, they never fully explain what that "something" is. Instead, they talk in nebulous terms about "cutting back" on the use of fossil fuels. There's a reason they obfuscate. If voters find out what they have in mind, they'll be routed in 2020, and they know it.

Having embraced the extreme "do something" plan known as the Green New Deal, Democrats have a nasty surprise in store for voters who haven't looked beneath the lipstick and mascara that's being troweled on in pancake-thick layers to conceal the linchpin of their plan to "save the planet": a massive punitive tax on the consumption of fossil fuel energy.

As reported by Forbes, a United Nations special climate report calls for a global carbon tax of $49 per gallon of gasoline within 12 years. You read that right: $49 per gallon. At roughly 100 times the average state and federal gasoline tax, the U.N.'s carbon tax "suggestion" would raise the cost of a 13-gallon fill-up to over $600, just for the carbon tax.

Few people know about the U.N.'s demand for a $49-per-gallon gasoline tax. Why? Because progressive journalists in the complicit Western media have helped the climate crisis lobby keep it hidden. No intelligent person can fail to see that such taxes would destroy the U.S. economy, and with it the lifestyle of all but the wealthiest Americans.

I guess people would have to go back to riding horses and bicycles to get around. Of course that will work just great in rural and suburban places in the dead of winter with 2' snow drifts on the roads.

Do all these crazy people live in urban areas of Mediterranean or equatorial countries where winter is a snowless event? (fwiw virtually all scientific advancement since the dawn of industrialization has come from areas that HAVE SNOW at least now and then).

China would go back to city streets clogged with bicycles and every place else would have to do the same. (bikes are nice but you can't go far on them or use them in really bad weather, and the infirm can't use them at all)

Re: A $600 fill-up?
As reported by Forbes,

If Paris streets burned over a proposed 25 cents per gallon climate change tax, imagine the global conflagration over a $49 per gallon tax.

By 2100, the U.N. estimates that a carbon tax of $27,000 per ton is needed—$240 per gallon—to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Keep in mind that the unrest in France was triggered by a looming 25-cent hike, which is a little less than 10% more in taxes than French drivers already pay. To meet the $49 per gallon tax hike recommended by the U.N., fuel taxes in France would have to go up 17-fold.

Siphoning gas from those who can afford it would be a major crime if that happened, and if you have a locking gas cap the peeps would just crawl under it with a pan and a sharp object and steal it that way.
