Carter Disappointed in Obama’s Climate Policy

Fox News Denver: “President Jimmy Carter called a tax on carbon emissions ‘the only reasonable approach’ to combating climate change during an appearance here Tuesday, but lamented that even piecemeal actions are unlikely to get through a divided Congress.”

“The Obama administration is currently considering new rules to force states to reduce carbon emissions by 30 percent by the year 2030, but Carter cautioned that executive actions taken without the support of Congress won’t be as impactful as passing legislation.”

Carter: “I was a bit disappointed he took a wait and see approach during his first five or six years in office, but he’s moving now … The biggest problem we have right now is some nutcases in our country who don’t believe in global warming.”
