At a hearing Thursday on the Keystone oil pipeline, James Hansen, former director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, testified before Congress that 100 percent of the proceeds from a proposed carbon tax should go to the public, because liberals will try to use part of it to “make the government bigger.”

“An important point is that such legislation I think needs to be introduced by conservatives, because I’m afraid liberals will try to take part of the money to make the government bigger.

the tax alone will grow govt as they will claim to need more people for collection, enforcement, and regulations.

just like in commie countries, it’s all about finding something to do for the party faithful and spies using other peoples money which all builds their empire

“100 percent of the proceeds from a proposed carbon tax should go to the public”

Why should there be a carbon tax in the first place? Why is Congress even having this discussion?

Hansen, you finally figured out what "climate change" is all about.

Now, how do you like being used. You've been shilling for "climate change" all along, but it was really just politics.

Why didn’t the regime pass Cap N Tax back in 2010 when they had triple control?

Too busy with Obamacare?

Why bother collecting a tax if you’re going to turn around and give it back to the taxed? Libtards!

James Hansen said this? Must be he’s looking for a new gov’t gig, and knows the Demwits are done. Thanks Olog-hai.

That will not happen because we are too smart. There is no Global warming and we want to keep our money.

He wants to turn it into an entitlement. After all, you know not just anybody will get that free money.

This carbon tax should apply to India, China and Brazil, too.

Why not tax all the elements? Taxing carbon, but not oxygen is discriminatory!

Mr. Hansen, what we need is to say NO to carbon tax.

I don’t doubt you a bit I just can’t help taking a shallow talking point like that and slapping it with its own shallow absurdity.
