Carbon emissions mirror our craving for cheap energy. As it grows, carbon emissions will too, despite carbon taxes.
Canadian economist, Jeff Rubin, has written a new book The Carbon Bubble. In it he predicts that the carbon economy is about to implode like the South Sea Bubble. Not bloody likely! So long as more and more of us want to do more and more, big carbon will have no trouble selling its wares. Carbon taxes will get passed along, and we will burn more and more of it as the planet warms up. Wind farms, solar arrays, and hybrid cars are just pissing in the wind; they throw things at the symptoms and miss completely the disease, the plague of homo sapiens.
