The 2016 Democratic Party platform endorses a carbon tax on the American people. The carbon tax language, added at the last minute, states:

“Democrats believe that carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases should be priced to reflect their negative externalities, and to accelerate the transition to a clean economy and help meet out climate goals.”

The move by Democrats to impose a carbon tax comes in clear contrast to the 2016 Republican Party platform opposition to any carbon tax:

“We oppose any carbon tax.”

Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform, predicts the Democrat call for a carbon tax will have electoral consequences: “When counting to 270 – the number of electoral votes needed to win the presidency – the Republicans may have already won the election in five short words: ‘We oppose any carbon tax.’ Note the overlap between new fracking states – Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Colorado – and the swing states to reach 270 for any candidate.”

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders told rowdy Democratic delegates Monday night that the 2016 election was about issues like health care, wages and even global warming.

“This election is about climate change, the greatest environmental crisis facing our planet, and the need to leave this world in a way that is healthy and habitable for our kids and future generations,” Sanders told liberals gathered at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Sanders praised his primary opponent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in his speech, and went so far as to say Clinton “will make an outstanding president.” Sanders’ praise for Clinton comes just four months after he said her judgement was “clearly lacking.”

The self-described democratic socialist laid out the differences between Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump on a slew of policy issues, including global warming.

there it is..no surprise..

Democrats believe that carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases should be priced to reflect their negative externalities, and to accelerate the transition to a clean economy and help meet out climate goals.”

and then bernie spells it out even though he has quit the party since his speech at the convention:

“This election is about climate change, the greatest environmental crisis facing our planet, and the need to leave this world in a way that is healthy and habitable for our kids and future generations,”
