“Environmentalist” groups appear to oppose Washington carbon tax because it wouldn’t grow government enough

Want more proof that those promoting apocalyptic-manmade-global-warming-by-CO2 theories are simply promoting socialism?

Here is a story from the state of Washington about a true believer who found that “big green” groups weren’t supporting his carbon-tax ballot initiative.

The reason: his ballot proposal was “revenue neutral” and did not require growth in government. Environmental groups are reportedly “more afraid of tax cuts and smaller governments” than they are concerned about actual efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
