    Obama already was on Television long before he was Nominated advocating destroying the Coal powered plants by taxing them into oblivion. 60 percent of our electricity comes from coal. And we have no plan to replace it, even if we did it would take YEARS to build the non existant Green Power plants.

    Obama also stated in the piece that he liked the idea of using onerous taxes to destroy all power generation that was not green enough for him and to eliminate oil and natural gas use.

    ALL with no replacements. Ohh he would let the Government pay for poor peoples electricity but fuck the middle class.

    The cap and trade tax will be the absolute worst thing that could happen to this country and this economy. You Dims are all up in arms at companies that send jobs out of the country, but what do you think will happen when the cost of doing business doubles or triples because of this tax?

    You thought $4 a gallon gas was a crime committed by the oil companies, but what about $7 or $8 a gallon gas due to a carbon tax?

    Obama seems to have an agenda to drive America back to the stone age where like in Kenya we all cook over campfires and heat our homes by burning cow shit.

    Instead of encouraging retooling to less energy intensive means of production, transportation and heating systems, Obama in all his "wisdom" has decided to take even more money from you. Money that could have been used to actually install a new heating system, or a more efficient production plant will now be confiscated and squandered by the government.

    yeah good plan.

    here are a few ways you can screw the government out of its carbon tax revenue

    https://www.sunoven.com/
    The Solar Sponge - Solar Air Heater
    Solar Water Heating Projects and Plans

    DSIRE: Incentives by State: Incentives in Federal

    some of these upgrades are eligible for tax credits, although these credits are not as generous as they should be (I'm for a 100% tax credit for entire cost and installation of such systems) but it's all our money hungry government will give us.

    Carbon credits have no real worth yet they are going to be traded, bought and sold on the market. Haven't we made this mistake before?
