    Obama’s Cap N Trade Lie | Newsflavor


    The Democrat Cap n Trade legislation puts forth a goal of capping global carbon to 450 parts per million by 2050. Now for the average American, such a number by itself has very little meaning to them. The Democrats will simply smile and nod, and present the figure as proof of how they wish to save the world from dirty and abusive humankind. The evil Republicans of course care not for the planet, and will oppose this Cap n Trade legislation out of pure avarice - the earth be damned. And yet, where does the real evil of this legislation actually reside? Could it be in the asinine projections of lowered carbon emissions - projections based on pure folly meant only to justify yet another dangerous expansion of government upon private enterprise?

    I'll be in our state's capitol today, joining several industry groups in protest of this legislation.
    The goal is admirable, the means abominable.
    Crap and trade alright.

    More...

    Even such nations as France and Switzerland, often noted as the world leaders in CO2 reductions, would fall far short of the Democrat Cap n Trade CO2 reduction goals. Those nations would have to reduce their current emission levels by over 50%, an impossibility for nations already utilizing nearly 80 percent of their energy via CO2 neutral production by nuclear and hydro power. (Both these forms of energy production have long been under attack by environmentalists in the United States by the way…)

    Instead of focusing on cap and trade,

    I would be putting money into developing carbon nanotubes.

    Then we wouldn't need cap and trade.

    It doesn't bother me.

    Clean energy is made in America. I don't mind paying more for it.
