More mandated neglect in our future -- the depraved are circulating another carbon tax bill.

I LOVE that phrase "mandated neglect" too!!!! It sure does seem like all the band of merry men can think about is how much $$$ they can squeeeeeeeeeeeeeze out of ordinary folk like us so they can continue their war on climate change. What they’re trying to pull off…. makes the conspicuously offensive Sherriff of Nottingham look like a rank amateur.

I am sure there is a name for this type of stuff since it has been around since the days of the Sheriff of Nottingham!” I thought about it…. would rank treachery be the name for this type of stuff where the poor get fleeced to fatten the elite…. that 1% of the 1% of the 1% who enjoy combined profits in the billions... no trillions..... while more and more of us get forced to choose between heating and eating?

Meaning of Rank: Luxuriant in growth; of vigorous growth; exuberant; grown to ... rights"; "a glaring error"; "gross ineptitude"; "gross injustice"; "rank treachery" ...

Yes Rank treachery sounds like a good fit.

The poster boys of climate change thrive in the icy Arctic: Polar bears defy concerns about their extinction

Excerpt from above:
Quote:
For years polar bears have been the poster boys of global warming – routinely reported to be threatened with extinction due to melting ice-packs and rising sea temperatures.

Indeed, when they were put on the US Endangered Species list in 2008, they were the first to be registered solely because of the perceived threat of global warming.

One prominent scientist said their numbers would be reduced by 70 per cent by 2050 while global warming proponents – including Al Gore and Sir David Attenborough – used emotive imagery to highlight their ‘demise’.

Yet there is one small problem…
