    ...The beat goes on...


    Will Business Learn to Love the Carbon Tax? <I>Is it redistribution of wealth?</I>

    "...Consistent with promises made during the campaign, and motivated by the need for revenue, the Obama transition team has made enactment of a cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emissions a top priority..."

    I'm wondering how many people will miss Bush in 2010? I'm guessing quite a few. I hope I'm wrong.

    I do. I don't expect that a carbon tax will impact us though. In fact, we’re currently looking into tax credits verses cost for green upgrades to commercial properties (apartment buildings).

    Then the tax is working as it should to get people to conserve and produce energy here in America.

    its not possible for a tax to hit in Jan, he doesnt take office till jan 20th and there will only be 11 days left in the month and i dont believe any legislation (even if passed on the 20th) would be able to take effect that soon
