Clear Energy Alliance: Riot Fuel

Liberals often talk about their desire to impose carbon taxes on fossil fuels in order to make it more expensive to use them, but enacting taxes on energy has harmful impacts on consumers, particularly those who have less income to spare. As a result, carbon taxes are among the most regressive taxes imaginable, and making energy artificially more expensive has sparked riots across the world.

The video below explains how governments in Iran, Chile, and France sparked riots by imposing policies that make energy more expensive. Renewable energy special interest groups often talk about the environmental costs of using coal and natural gas in an attempt to fudge the numbers and make wind and solar look lower cost in comparison, but I’d like to see them factor in the social unrest that their policies cause into their calculations.
