Here is some information that I have retrieved from the “Luxembourg News.” I get the news on my computer in English and get to see what the other side of the ocean is saying about the United States and the rest of the world. U.S. Steel Corp has a plant in Slovakia and is going to lay off 2,500 of its union workers. It seems that with the “carbon” tax imposed by the European Union they are not able to compete with the cheap steel being imported from outside the European Union. U.S. Steel pointed to “high electrical costs” and “CO2 credits costs that have risen five times in the past year.”
Poland’s parliament on Friday adopted measures to compensate its industry struggling to cope with the surging electricity bills triggered by higher EU carbon emissions cost. If the “socialists” in the U.S. get the “green taxes” passed — we will be faced with the same increase in unemployment. Nothing is free but eventually, you will run out of the other people paying for your dreams.
