Joe Biden and Democrats are trying to fundamentally alter the country in the name of combating so-called “climate change.”

But the Left has gained a new ally in the push to lower carbon emissions. 

And Elon Musk just proposed one terrifying solution to so-called climate change that put jaws on the floor.

Under the guise of saving the planet from so-called “climate change,” environmental extremists are trying to gain control over every aspect of the American people’s lives.

According to radical environmentalists, carbon emissions from the human use of fossil fuels are the main driving force behind so-called “climate change.”

The idea of imposing a global tax on carbon emissions has been gaining support among the far-left in recent months.

During a panel discussion on the “Global Economic Outlook” at the recent annual World, the Swiss ski resort town of Davos, Saudi Arabian Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan called for the implementation of a global carbon tax as a way to lower emissions.

“There is no realistic solution to the climate transition that does not involve a globally coordinated system of carbon taxes,” he said. “There’s a perception that it’s unjust, it’s unfair, it will lead to inflation, but in fact, quite the contrary,” he continued. “If we don’t do this, the countries that will suffer most ultimately are the developing countries.”

“They’re going to be the worst affected by climate change,” he declared. “What we need is a system of carbon taxes coupled with subsidies for developing households and a stream of funding for the developing world, to allow them to engage in investments and mitigations and adaptation that allows them to keep growing.”

Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk became a hero to conservatives over the past year after he purchased the platform formerly known as Twitter, turned it into the world’s leading platform for free speech, and began railing against woke extremism and Democrats’ socialist agenda.

Under Musk’s ownership, X allows users to freely discuss topics like COVID, the border, and “climate change” without fear of being censored or banned from using the platform.

But apparently, Musk still supports one of the worst and most dangerous aspects of the Left’s green agenda.

In a recent post on X, Musk declared that the only solution to solving the alleged climate crisis was through the imposition of a carbon tax.

“The only action needed to solve climate change is a carbon tax,” Musk wrote.

Of course, Musk’s call for carbon taxes drew fire from conservatives on social media.

“Taxation is theft, especially a carbon tax,” the Hodgetwins wrote.

Apparently feeling the heat, Musk tried to clarify his comments as only a partial carbon tax.

“We should not, for example, impose draconian laws on farmers or make citizens uncomfortable by limiting air-conditioner usage!” Musk commented on his own post. “Keep tax revenue constant, but shift it to tax what is probably bad (CO2), just like alcohol & cigarettes are taxed more than fruits & vegetables.”
