Should Drivers Pay for Global Warming? (Yahoo Main Page/Wired Magazine/L.A. Times)

I saw this on the most popular site in the world - the main page - from Wired Magazine via the L.A. Times, here it comes and it's coming fast, either print the hell out of my flyer or do your own in MS Word or PowerPoint to wake your neighbours.

If the masses accept the taxes then we'll have hell to pay - LITERALLY - soon...

The Global Warming Rapture = Takes Our Stuff.

Should Drivers Pay for Global Warming?

By Marty Jerome | Wired Magazine | April 02, 2008

Nothing riles Southern Californians like a new tax on their God-given right to drive. Yet motorists in Los Angeles County might be paying an extra 9 cents per gallon at the gas pump--or an additional $90 on their vehicle registration fees. The purpose? It would help fight global warming.

Voters will decide whether to approve a "climate change mitigation and adaptation fee" under a proposed law being debated by the state legislature. It has already been endorsed by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The money would be used to fund public transportation and other projects that ease traffic congestion at a time when the state budget is strapped and money from Washington has all but dried up. Critics are hopping mad. They say that it exploits public sympathy for global warming in order to fund projects that are already sucking down tax payers' dollars.

Who gets tapped? Read after the jump.

Supporters point out that many ambitious public transportation projects, including the Subway to the Sea, the Wilshire bus-only lane and the extension of the Gold Line subway aren't fully funded--and risk being sidelined.

The tax would pull in an estimated $400 million a year, which makes it a model that other cash-strapped states will no doubt find enticing. California voters will have to decide whether or not it's fair.
