Elon Musk Comes Out in Support of WEF Carbon Tax

Elon Musk reiterated his belief that carbon taxes need to be implemented, falling in lockstep with the World Economic Forum’s recent call for a “globally coordinated system of carbon taxes.”

In a recent tweet, Musk called for the introduction of carbon taxes.

As Breitbart News reported:

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.

Musk stated:

“The only action needed to solve climate change is is a carbon tax.”

However, Conservatives were quick to voice their descent with Musk’s position on carbon taxes.

This isn’t the first time the Tesla CEO called such Carbon taxes.

During an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, Musk said he spoke with 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.

“The economy works great. Prices and money are just information. If the price is wrong, the economy doesn’t do the right thing.”
