The last statement is ignorant horse shit. And the whole point of taxing co2 pollution is the premise that an economy dependent on the stuff is not sustainable environmentally or economically. So of course it makes no sense to do so if you reject that premise out of hand, but if you offer no valid objection you haven't got anywhere.

To debunk that piece of nonsense I'd just say (1) he is setting up a strawman as to what any tax of co2 in existence is trying to achieve and (2) he hasn't even offered a well resourced rebuttal to the strawman he set up.
