    I guess she’s running out of ideas now the election is over.

    True, Ima, I am a moron. I admit it. It’s amazing I got through so much schooling with such a limited IQ. Can’t type too much more here, though, I gotta get to the Global Warming Church. We’re working to get our Tax-Free status upheld by Internal Revenue. And thanks in advance for your donation to our collection plate.

    Obama and the Dems plan to use the “crisis” of “the fiscal cliff” to start many, many new taxes on all Americans, beginning maybe with the carbon tax.
    IMO, the Democrat “solution” will create a New Recession, maybe leading to the 2nd Depression.

    People don’t realize that a “small” tax here, and a “small” fee there, soon add up to a lot! The American people are struggling as it is, so piling on additional costs will be a huge burden. American businesses are struggling, so adding additional costs will mean the loss of many jobs.

    Soon, the Great Depression will look like a good time compared to what we’ll have!

    Unfortunately, that is the goal of this administration. They have already stated that they want the cost of gasoline to go to European levels. It. Is sad that we elected and re-elected this clown.

    The statements of this administration, and many folks, for many years, has been that if Americans faced the costs of other countries for fossil fuels, they might finally start to conserve, instead of waste them. About $8.40 a gallon in New Zealand, over $6 for some time in Europe,and oh yes, $0.38 a gallon in Iraq, have shown how “smart” we’ve been. About that $420 per gallon cost to provide fuel to our tanks and trucks in Afghanistan, now THERE is some “clever policy”!!

    I believe if you do a little research you will find they are using “bio fuels” and alternative energy sources promoted by the current administration. The cost you quote is a little misleading because it included development and R & D costs.

    A Cap and trade program was instituted in California on November 14, 2012. It is another grand plan for California to reduce emissions and develop alternative fuel sources. The 2 year “soft intro period” will probably just give businesses time to relocate to other states. That has been the result of most of California’s environmental programs of late.

    Ima hasn’t got the memo — the GOP has simply got to stop being the party of stupid. Why do you continue to back ideas that were proven false thirty years ago? Does truth really matter that much less than money for rich people?

    Dealing with a problem… that is what this is all about. I’d much appreciate suggestions rather than bunk.
    -
    (end bunk quote of bob)
    -
    Carbon is not a “Problem”….
    Carbon is necessary to human and planet life.
    Liberals use “Junk Science” to invent “problems” to solve with higher taxes and more government intrusion and expansion.
    -
    Wise citizens see through Liberal skullduggery.

    Maybe all you sheep who do not understand the scientific method should look at the report released last week indicating that global temperatures have been STABLE for the last 16 years! This collides with every prediction about the THEORY of AGW. The earth is supposed to warm up and accelerate the rate of warming in the process – not stop. This piece of data destroys every posited THEORY of AGW. I know its painful when facts collide with politics.
    Remember AGW is nothing but models run on computers with LOTS of assumptions and admitted incomplete understandings of the model. Not least of which is the role of water vapor and clouds which are the PRIMARY heat catchers – not CO2.
    But go on believing your religeon…It doesn’t bear close examination.

    California residents would see no net increase in their monthly utility bills as a result of the state’s new cap-and-trade system to fight global warming, under a proposal issued Friday by state regulators.
    .
    Instead, the system would actually pay residential customers a small dividend, with the money drawn from the power plants, factories and other facilities that pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
    .
    Under the proposal from the California Public Utilities Commission, residential utility customers would receive a “climate dividend,” worth an estimated $30, twice each year.

    There is a meter Lisa, but it is running backwards.

    We in Germany had cap and trade for quite some time now and prices crept upwards only slowly. But after Fukushima and the decision to drop nuclear power Big Energy can see the end of their monopoly. They now try to bilk us, but they will be thwarted. We’ve had enough of this wild-west capitalism in our country and will nationalize them if need be…
