My opinion is NO!

I do not want electricity rates to skyrocket. That simply would not in my best interests.

How about you? Do you want your electricity bill to skyrocket?

I am 70 miles or so from a power line. The only way my bill goes up is if somebody figures out how to tax the sun and the wind.

therefore I don't care.

It is a simple question.

Our electricity bill for the 12 months ending in April of this year was $3.00.

My son hasn't paid a penny for gas in the two years, he has been driving a Chevy Bolt; my wife and I will be test driving plug in new cars this fall; we currently drive a 2018 RAV4 Hybrid - I fill up < once a month.

I don't believe this tweet. Are you missing a few zeroes in your number?

It's $30 a month for us in summer months, $120-$150 a month in the winter.

If it makes it significantly easier to breath outside, I'll pay whatever for my minimal energy use.

Do you believe that all the carbon dioxide out there is making it more difficult to breathe?

Why or why not?

Fossil fuel pollution contributes to both the onset and and aggravation of breathing conditions. It also is a major cause of death, especially among the elderly. So yes, the less the better. Even nuclear is a better alternative.

I wasn't dodging. If my electric bill has to go up for the air everyone breathes to be cleaner, I'm for that. If it doesn't have to, then cool.

Do you actually believe that the trace gas, carbon dioxide, somehow makes the air everyone breathes less clean?

Why or why not?

Please elaborate.

It does. But particulates are a (literally) larger problem. However they tend to go together.

Coal is obviously the worst, because the ash is radioactive.

Howso?

How do trace amounts of carbon dioxide make it more difficult for you to breathe?
