Butts Shares Tweet Praising Idea Of “Global Scheme Of Carbon Taxes Uniformly Imposed On All Countries”

Get ready for the carbon tax to go up and for more and more control over Canada’s economy to be handed over to supranational institutions.

In a tweet criticizing Andrew Scheer, Gerald Butts once again showed how the Trudeau Liberals are obsessed with giving more and more power to global institutions at the expense of Canadians.

While falsely claiming that Trudeau’s hated carbon tax was based on “economics and science,” Butts quoted a tweet calling for a global carbon tax:

“Canada will have an important debate about how to tackle the pollution that causes climate change in 2019.

The @JustinTrudeau plan is based on the best available economics and science. The @AndrewScheer plan does not (yet) exist.”


Here’s the Tweet Butts was quoting:

“Laureate William Nordhaus’ research shows that the most efficient remedy for problems caused by greenhouse gas emissions is a global scheme of carbon taxes uniformly imposed on all countries. The diagram shows CO2 emissions for four climate policies according to his simulations.”


What a joke.

Butts ignores clear evidence of the failure of carbon taxes, including how BC’s emissions keep going up despite them having a carbon tax for years.

But more disturbingly, the fact that Butts is sharing a tweet supporting a “global scheme of carbon taxes uniformly imposed on all countries,” is quite concerning.

It’s also no surprise, as the Trudeau Liberals have shown over and over again that they’ll seize every opportunity to give more and more of our power over to global institutions, while using ‘climate change’ as an excuse to take money away from the Canadian People.

And considering the influence that Butts has over Trudeau, we know that the carbon tax will keep going up and up and up as long as Trudeau is in power.
