Why doesn't Trump implement a carbon tax on imports & exports instead of tariffs as that would encourage business to stay?

Update:

Any intelligent people?

    A carbon tax would encourage business?! Is this even serious?

    Taxes discourage business.

    Why doesn't he dress up a donkey in a suit and call it Al? What would be the point of calling it something different than what it was?

    I hate tariffs but so do our competitors but our competitors know it would make their products less competitive. He needs a few more arrows in his quiver. The tariff card is getting kind of old except for China which is more for national security.

      Significant enough for you to make a whiny thread about all the nonsense questions I moved into the global warming section last week. Did you get paid for moving them all out?

    Trump knows that CO2 is innocent of all accusations that it is the control knob for anthropogenic global warming.

    He also knows that the Catastrophic Radiative Greenhouse Effect is junk science that violates the laws of physics. Especially the 1st and 2nd Laws to Thermodynamics, which show that it is nothing but a "perpetual motion engine" that derives energy from nothing.

      Nope. Algore is sticking with 15 trillion. Up from the Billions he was gonna make if the leaked emails had not sunk him (and his investors who were pizzed)

    Because his billionaire friends like the idea of moving their factories to third world nations.

      That happened under our liberal run government long before Trump came along. So far he just trying to undo the mess your people made.

    That is simple. A carbon tax would raise the price on everything. Food would go up, even domestically produced food. The tax would then be taken by the government and Soros and his merry band of thieves would prosper. This would do nothing for the environment and nothing to help the US economy.

    The tariffs would not only make the US products more competitive but would encourage companies to come into the US or even stay here. Only products made outside of the US would be affected. A win win situation.

      Fake Dirac really hate them facts. Everybody works for the evil oil companies. And NASA is pure as the driven snow. As soon as a real credible scientist comes out against the AGW we all gonna die theorem, their smeared . Notice he never ever addresses the holes in liberal "settled science " theory?

    The county fair in the U.S. is right around the corner. You know that Dirac has big plans to visit as many as possible. This poem is about that perv.

    Dirac the perv

    Down on the farm

    Molesting the animals

    Doing them harm

    And of course there's Dirac's ego

    He really likes to gloat

    Last nite he really put it to

    The farmer's big billy goat!

    One of his favorites to pork

    Is the really fat pig

    At 300 lbs

    Dirac really likes them big

    Let's not forget

    One of his favorites, the sheep

    He really goes all out

    To stick it in deep

    Finally, we have the best

    It's Dirac's favorite, of course

    He really goes to town

    Under the very well hung horse

      Sagebrush made the first comment in this exchange. He said he hopes I am successful in combating paid trolls. I see the paid trolls deleted the Sagebrush comment. LOL!

    Two reasons.

    1) He's incompetent.

    2) Even if he wasn't incompetent, he doesn't care about anything but himself.

    Because a carbon tax is ineffective, and the tariffs are designed to be a short term leverage to get fair treatment, not an income redistribution plan like a carbon tax.
