Iranian protestors–like those in Paris, Ecuador, and Chile–are driven by outrage over climate taxes

Iran has been the Middle East’s poster child in the area of climate change regulations.

Since the 2015 Paris Accords, the Iranian government has positioned itself as a worldwide “climate tax” leader. The government loudly denounced the U.S. when U.S. President Trump pulled out of the Paris agreement in 2017.

Iran has recently raised carbon taxes on gasoline to meet its emission targets. Now the people are rioting in the streets.

The “mainstream” media is virtually silent.
