As certain leftist members of Congress work to initiate sweeping CO2 reduction legislation, the facts show that reducing America's CO2 output will have minimal impact on additional global CO2. (To say nothing of the inherent and quite appropriate arguement regarding CO2's actual impact on global temperature) If reducing CO2 was in fact a real concern of the leftist global doom n gloomers, why not demand China reduce its output while enjoying the fact that the United States, despite continued growth of population and economy, has managed to keep its own CO2 output relatively stable for nearly 12 years? (Good on you USA!) Maybe the fact we owe China trillions and they could give a rat's ass about our illogical obsession with controlling the earth's climate and would just tell us to go to hell... Could it be that the concept of "saving the planet" as it applies to Draconian cap n trade/carbon control legislation is nothing more than another governmental power grab and get-rich-quick scheme by the Go Green Machine?
