When The Only Tool You Know How To Use Is A Hammer.....

Then every problem looks like a nail.

Guess what? Democrats are planning to address global warming with higher taxes.

The problem with this is that, way back when Algore was promoting a 50 cent per gallon carbon tax as a way to reduce CO2 emissions, the argument was that the higher prices would encourage less consumption. Well, gasoline prices are about $2.00 per gallon higher than they were back then, and consumption has continued to rise.

Democrats just want more money to spend.
