    - There’s a bunch of money basically sitting idle.
    - There’s a bunch of work that really needs doing.
    - There’s a bunch of people looking for work.
    -
    Why are we not using the money that’s currently doing nothing, to hire the people looking for work, to do the work that really needs doing? Can you help us with that, Lisa?

    A gas tax, announced four years before it goes into effect, might not raise much money, since everyone, knowing it’s coming, will buy more fuel-efficient cars. Which is why we don’t want and don’t need any tax on gas or carbon. Small, fuel-efficient cars are very dangerous, and we don’t want to take that risk.


    We know global warming is a hoax, because all the evidence requires math, and, as G_d-fearing people, we know math is evil. (Most of us, having been stuck in math classes in secondary school, knew that without having to read St Augustine.) We also know that there are plenty of dinosaurs eating beans and producing fossils, so we have more fossil fuel that we can possibly ever burn, and we should try to burn as much of it as we can.


    So no tax, no cap, no trade!

    I haven’t read that much about cap and trade,but the only entities benefiting from it seem to be the government and companies selling their co2 emission allotments if their co2 emissions are below their allotments. I haven’t read anything yet that says cap and trade will assuredly lead to a significant reduction in co2 emissions.

    Cap and trade was thought up by Republicans and instituted by members of the George H W Bush Administration as a way to curb sulfur emissions and the resulting acid rain.

    Tax cap and trade the plunder! Obama told us that gas should be 5$ a gallon for our own good! That coal should be bankrupt for our own good. Never mind Our clean air acts, the laws we have on the books right now have worked to clean up our Nation. That we have. But Obama thinks we have not done enough. We all have to believers in his made up Gorbul Warming religion. That is how we are to be leaders in the world. Never mind China and India are growing like no one cares. We in the USA can not have 97% scrubers in coal, nooo we must bankrupt coal by saying they need 98.7 scubbers and other jack boot EPA regulations.

    Even the moves we are considering won’t be enough to slow global warming perceptibly, so let’s just live it up! WOO HOO! I’m turning on all the lights in the house! (Sorry, kids, but I won’t be around for the consequences!)

    Let me make this clear! Nothing Obama has proposed caused this!

    -————————-
    Yes it requires math to fudge the data so they can say global warming is real.It takes math to put those satellites up there to look at the ice caps.
    Why is the southern one getting bigger faster then the northern one is getting somwhat smaller?
    There is a government funded website that shows the data since satellites were put in polar orbit to look at the ice caps.

    1st we had Peace Prize Al Gory and his Sci Fi horror flick, now we have Obama we must be believers to be leaders illegally using the EPA to make his promise to stop the seas from rising for our own good. At least Al Gory made a few million on his scheme. Obama is just using it to punish the USA.

    Funny how it has never been instituted anywhere outside your imagination.

    How is this Cap & Trade scheme anything but a pagan version of the old indulgence scam the Catholics used to pull? Only in that the Catholics couldn’t make you buy indulgences at government gunpoint.

    And where exactly would we find that money?
