Paris Is Burning Over Climate Change Taxes

December 21, 2018   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags:

The City of Lights, Paris, has been illuminated in recent days by cars set alight by thousands of protesting “Yellow Vests”—largely middle class people who earn their living by driving or who commute to get to work. The cause of their ire is a scheduled 25 cents-per-gallon increase in gas taxes, and about 10 cents on diesel, to fight climate change.

French President Macron, deeply unpopular, just reversed course on the new green tax—Parisians are already paying about $7.06 per gallon for gasoline, almost half of that in taxes.

If Paris streets burned over a proposed 25 cents per gallon climate change tax, imagine the global conflagration over a $49 per gallon tax.

That’s what a United Nations special climate report calls for in 12 years, with a carbon tax of $5,500 per ton—equal to $49 per gallon of gasoline or diesel. That’s about 100 times today’s average state and federal motor fuels tax.

  1. It’s out in the open now. ‘Climate Change’ used to be called ‘Global Warming’ which was preceded by ‘holes in the ozone’, etc. And then we were to be alarmed by the depletion of our natural resources such as oil etc. The fear mongering is a cover for what is in the ope now: The redistribution of the world’s wealth through exorbitant taxation ‘to save the world’ from greedy capitalism, this is also known as SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM on a global scale. And why? ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT is why.

    Read French President Marcon’s recent speeches against Nationalism, for example. The world is clamoring for no border. It is the recreation of the Tower of Babel, plain and simple: Genesis 11:1 ¶ Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words.
    2 It came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.
    3 They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.
    4 They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”
    5 ¶ The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
    6 The LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.

    What should our response be? To double down and get busy following Jesus and finishing the Work He commanded, Go and make disciples, preach the Gospel, and all the Works He has commanded of us.

    “How do you rule a country that has 246 varieties of cheese?” (Charles de Gaulle)
    “France is irreformable, do not propose to reform it but to transform it completely and radically.” (Emmanuel Macron)
    He’s going to have a hard time ..
    I think Forbes is short-sighted, very simplistic with his financial analysis of this french “shutdown”.

    Socialist countries often use gasoline tax as a primary way of collecting taxes to support socialism (that provides free healthcare and free university education, etc) instead ofan income tax as we do in the USA. It dopesn’t mean their gasoline is actually higher, it just means they have to pay taxes one way or another. It is smart in that tourist who buy gasoline help pay for socialism.
