    We had eight years of cutting spending on everything but the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, look where that has brought us.

    This bill would not only add many dollars to our utility bills – not just for the rich, but for everyone, but it would destroy jobs in this country. Why would anyone pay cap and trade taxes here when they could go to China and not have those added taxes. Secondly, the science that is being used for these “global warming” stats has been proven to be false. Get a good “Discussion” with varied scientests – not just those that agree with Al Gore and prove with accurate data that the globe is actually warming. Plant a few trees – that will take care of the CO2!

    Wow, how did you uncover such indisputable, gut-wrenching hard evidence?

    So your actually advocating for the companies who would leave the U.S? Not to mention that they’ve already done that en masse, before cap and trade proposals. This bill would not add many dollars to our utility bills, and it would not destroy jobs, it would create them. Common sense tells you new Industry brings new jobs, it’s just time for government to stand behind renewable energy, like it has done coal, oil and nuclear for decades. Take away their government crutch; and they would fold in a second. I notice you people talk about excess spending now, that’s foolishness. No excess spending has occurred for renewable energy, it’s been the opposite with a failing coal and nuclear industry getting fattened with government subsidies and handouts designed for new and innovative technologies like renewable energy.

    Global Warming has not been proven false, because it is already occurring, it is not theory. the earths temperature has risen 1.4 degrees fahrenheit in the past century. You can see the changes with retreating glaciers, and heat waves that have killed many people. "Plant a few trees shows how ignorant you are of what global warming really is, do some reading and stop misleading the American Public.

    I’m all for cap and trade!! Let’s put a dunce cap on Obama and all the liberals in Congress and trade them for moderates and conservatives in 2010 and 2012.

    P.S.
    We could reduce CO2 considerably if we all stopped breathing for just 1 hour per day!!!

    Most people in the world, given a choice, would prefer clean energy over “dirty” energy (even those of us who already know climate change is a scam). We don’t need any additional carrot or stick to choose clean over dirty. The problem is, there isn’t a choice yet! Other than nuclear (which Obama will not support), we have no alternatives that can take the place of Coal & Petroleum.
    Go ahead and tax dirty energy to the moon, but FIRST make an equivalent clean alternative available (without affecting our food supply). If the government wants to solve the problem, they can invest in R&D until a viable alternative exists, then push a transition. Govt could make a deal with a private company to guarantee a 10-year exclusive if they make it happen. It is quite simple. This bill is about CONTROL, not about helping the planet.

    This bill will provide neither.

    Waste Biodiesel, Geothermal energy, Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Ocean Current Systems are all viable alternatives to coal and petroleum. The last eight years were about control, wake up.

  • jguv 06/02/2009 5:21pm

    Right. Just when we’re trying to build electric cars to reduce emissions, now we’re going to hike the cost of electricity until only the rich can drive. Does anyone up there (in DC) know what it’s like to try to work for a living? I’m TAPPED OUT!

    Going into debt creates wealth hardhatgal? What exactly is your definition of “wealth” then? Maybe you meant to say, “it will create wealth for the USA government.”

  • Comm_reply

    Going into debt is what we’re doing now; using China’s economy to support our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq(Thanks Bush). Renewable energy will create manufacturing and green jobs in the US, unlike coal and oil who are downsizing their job force, and increasing their productivity. Coal clearly doesn’t care for American workers, especially with all the mining accidents lately, black lung and poor wages is all you can expect from king coal nowadays, the oil industry isn’t much different either. A new job industry demands new and specially trained workers=well paid. Manufacturing and construction industry will boom.

    If you think the last eight years created wealth your senseless.

    Thats libelous and inflammatory, the cost of electricity won’t be raised beyond the reach or ordinary citizens.

  • burke524 06/06/2009 5:08am

    Seems that all clear thinking people agree that this would only harm the Country. I was under the impression that WE were the country. Why are we letting this wacko decide what is not best for us? Hard to understand. I have said before that when over half of the people are on the dole the Country has reached a point of no return. It is here, I think..

    Seems you people all have jobs in promoting coal, nukes, gas and oil. Unlike you the rest of America need help finding jobs. I suppose you are so well paid you are unaware of the financial crisis afflicting America at this moment? The economy has tanked because of taxing wars and handouts to failing industries like coal and nuclear, too much of our money goes overseas. The world is jumping on renewable energy while America sits on the benches, sidelined by Big Business lobbyists like yourselves, it’s time America became a world leader in something other than war again. We could do it, once you are out of our way. Let hardhatgirl fight for America, while you fight for big business.

    Global Warming is a crock. What part of coming out of an ice age don’t these idiots understand. Scientists have already proven the earth goes through a natural warming process as this happens.

    Remember, if everybody had common sense about basic physics, your TV dinner wouldn’t have a warning that “after heating, contents may be hot.”

    Perhaps you don’t understand the science of it. No time in the worlds entire history has the rate of temperature changed as rapidly as it is doing now and has been doing since the industrial revolution. The Ice Age was ages ago, it has nothing to do with what is happening now. Scientist have correlated the rate of change with the rate of green house gas emissions(since the industrial revolution) into our atmosphere calculating the effect these gases would have on earths climate. Basically the temperature spiked when greenhouse gas emissions spiked, and it has been doing so ever since. Renewable energy is both better for our economy and our planet, as it doesn’t produce smog(which can cause asthma that kills children every year), poisoned water and global warming among other things

    Actually, CO2 increases have been shown to LAG temperature increases. How can anything in the future influence the past? If the themerature increase occurs BEFORE the CO2 increase, CO2 cannot cause the temperature increase.

    Also, correlation does NOT mean causation. How do we know there is no hidden variable influencing both?
