    The ETS is corrupt in concept and in practice.

    Amazing what we come up with when laws and morals are lax.

    And now we see why there has been such a huge push in global warming hysteria in recent years. I have said before that Wall Street is licking it's chops over the prospect of trading carbon credits, while governments are lusting after a new gigantic source of revenue and control.

    Yesterday I read something about an international currency conference among the world leaders, to be followed up with an announcement in January; I wonder if an international carbon currency is what they have in mind?

    It would be a terrible idea under any circumstances, but to do this soon will lead to a depression.
