Is the carbon tax a crime against humanity?

Bjorn Lomborg is a prominent environmentalist who believes in global warming. But he is controversial in that he compares the impact on humans caused by proposed solutions against the alternative of not implementing such solutions. In a recent essay, he discusses the horrific impact of the global carbon tax on the world’s poor as well as such other things as the harm to poor people that would arise by implementing the Paris climate accords. He writes,

When a “solution” to a problem causes more damage than the problem, policymaking has gone awry. That’s where we often find ourselves with global warming today.

Activist organizations like Worldwatch argue that higher temperatures will make more people hungry, so drastic carbon cuts are needed. But a comprehensive new study published in Nature Climate Change led by researchers from the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis has found that strong global climate action would cause far more hunger and food insecurity than climate change itself. . . Trying to help 24 million people by imperiling 78 million people’s lives is a very poor policy (My emphasis.)

 

Read the whole thing. If his numbers are even remotely correct, the advocates of a carbon tax and related proposals are promoting a world-wide holocaust that dwarfs Hitler’s (and zooms toward the over hundred million victims murdered by Communism). They should be denounced for advocating “crimes against humanity.”
