Elon Musk Calls for Carbon Tax in Lockstep with WEF

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and owner of Twitter, has once again expressed his support for carbon taxes, echoing the World Economic Forum’s recent advocacy for a worldwide system of carbon taxes.

In a tweet, Musk called for the implementation of carbon taxes and reiterated the WEF’s call for coordinated global efforts in this regard.

Kurt Zindulka, a reporter from Breitbart News, recently covered the activities of the WEF.

During a panel discussion on the “Global Economic Outlook” on Friday during the annual WEF meeting in the Swiss ski resort town of Davos, Al-Jadaan argued that in order to solve the supposed climate crisis, a global carbon tax will be required.

“There is no realistic solution to the climate transition that does not involve a globally coordinated system of carbon taxes,” the Saudi politician said.

“What we need is a system of carbon taxes coupled with subsidies for developing households and a stream of funding for the developing world, to allow them to engage in investments and mitigations and adaption that allows them to keep growing. And that’s a real opportunity,” Al-Jadaan continued.

“It’s a fair solution and it’s the only realistic solution, and we can’t keep ducking it,” he concluded.

In a recent tweet, Musk stated “The only action needed to solve climate change is a carbon tax.”

Conservatives, who have previously praised Musk as a champion of free speech, wasted no time in expressing their disagreement with his stance on carbon taxes, which could potentially favor Tesla.

Musk has previously advocated for this tax on multiple occasions.

Musk has previously discussed this idea, stating during his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast that he had spoken to the Biden administration about implementing a carbon tax. “I talked to the Biden Administration, incoming administration, and they were like ‘well, this seems too politically difficult,’” he said.

“It’s not like we shouldn’t have carbon-generated things, there should be a price on this stuff,” he added, saying SpaceX would also pay a carbon tax as well. “The economy works great. Prices and money are just information. If the price is wrong, the economy doesn’t do the right thing.”

It was widely observed that both Musk and his electric vehicle company Tesla greatly profit from carbon and green energy taxes.

Breitbart News has highlighted since 2016 that Musk has received substantial benefits from taxpayer money and government assistance, which have greatly contributed to his success.
