Maxman-Markey is a very stupid bill.
Power Line - He Thinks You're Stupid
By and large most people are willing to let this go and bitch about it all after the bill hits them personally.
And the nightmare continues unabated.
All of the leftist elites think you're stupid. Especially if:
A) You disagree with them
B) You aren't one of them.
Which, for those of you on the Bobo bus, means pretty much covers everyone that isn't them.
Naturally if we make the price of energy higher, the quality of life is going to decline.
Hell, that's part of the problem Americans have been having for the last thirty years, isn't it?
Cap and Trade IS going to effect us in ways few of us will like.
An do almost nothing to solve the problem they are worried about in the process, assuming the problem truly exists in any meaningful way to begin with.
Are all wingnuts old and thus they do not care about the world they leave their children and grandchildren? Must be, as pollution has destroyed rivers, lakes and some coastal areas and until the EPA did something it would have caused more environmental destruction and human cancers. I suggest those who disagree move themselves and their families downwind of some of these polluting plants. That way they will die of cancer and just possibly the wingnut mentality will go extinct. We can hope can't we.
For those not controlled by corporate dreams, check out Jensen some time.
We either become energy independent, or we become a vassal of the states that have energy to export. That is simply the way the system works. And we have the capability of powering this whole nation with energy that does not change the climate or pollute. However, should we continue with the nay sayers controlling our energy use, we will see the present situation grow to the point that we will be a has been nation in my lifetime.
For today, there are 5 clean coal facilities permitted, and one being built, that is all there are in the whole world. All are in China. At present the leading producer of wind turbines is China. At present the leading producer of solar panels is China. Does this disturb any of you Conservatives?
I'll say. It will take many years to undo the damage inflicted on this nation by the Conservatives. But progress is being made.
I suggest those who agree with this absolute bullshit pay the increase in costs of living for those who don't. Since your're all for it, put YOUR money where your mouth is and quit supporting legislating legal theft from those who don't.
