Is Paris Burning Because of the Global Warming Scam?

A coalition of outraged Frenchmen from the Right and Left called the Yellow Vests have burned downtown Paris to protest government taxes on fuel prices.  In the last week the price of gasoline went down five cents in my neighborhood.  I’m guessing the fuel price increases must at least partly be part of EU initiatives to discourage CO2 emissions.  Wouldn’t it be funny if the EU has to back off the carbon footprint measures to prevent being dragged off to the guillotine.
