There remain questionable fundamental issues about the way carbon dioxide affects the climate. Observed temperatures by sophisticated technologies greatly and consistently conflict with today’s widely accepted, although highly questionable, scientific consensus about the effects humans have on climate change. We examine the research on the assumptions and predicted economic effects of a carbon tax. Research supporting the imposition of a carbon tax are based on modeling with flawed assumptions and the tax itself would cause crippling economic costs.
