Carbon-Tax Pressure

Duke Energy's CEO has come out in advocacy of a carbon-tax on so-called greenhouse gas emissions.

As the FoxNews commentary states,


Duke calls it a “carbon tax,” but we might call it the “Greenpeace tax” in honor of the various radical environmental groups, like Greenpeace (search), pushing global warming hysteria and supporting such a tax. But we could also call it the “corporate appeasement tax” in honor of businesses like Duke Energy that are stumbling over themselves to curry favor with the Greens.

Canada will implement a carbon-tax if only to appease the eco-lobby. Having guilt-ridden CEO's in the US advocating the same will only add fuel to the fire (but without the greenhouse emissions?)

That's just wrong, we should not be giving into the eco wackos at all.

Yes. If only we could get the right people to see it.

The pressure from the Eco-culture is making even these CEO's tremble. It is political correctness on steroids, and Corporate America is feeling like a 90lb weakling.

But such is the upside-down world we live in.
