    Cerebralscrub44, you wrote that this bill will create jobs. Nancy Pelosi said the same. Can you explain how these jobs will be created? Will they be sustainable if the government some day decides not to continue funding them?

    Does clean energy include nuclear energy or are you referring to solar and wind? By what mechanisms will the jobs be created? I truly don’t understand how this will work and, since you seem to be such a strong supporter, I’d appreciate it if you could clarify it to me.

    Thank you.

    With new industry comes new jobs – with new technology comes new jobs – with a new, more efficient, and better designed grid comes new jobs. Jobs weatherizing homes, jobs building, installing and maintaining solar panels and wind turbines. Jobs installing the power lines and generators. Even better, these jobs will be sustainable, because after the transition to clean energy, why go back? Why not keep innovating, keep coming up with better ideas? The government has reason to continue funding green jobs because we want to be the leader in the global economy! We want to be where the investments are, where the manufacturing and selling of goods and services are! We want to be the leader in clean power and efficient systems. This is a capitalist’s dream! It’s that simple, my friend.

    Stop getting all your facts from talk radio. It’s amazing how the talk show hosts are able to still utilize the fear tactics used during the last administration. Most Americans support health reform and it’s pretty much a 50-50 split on Cap and Trade (petroleum industry leading the anti charge). I don’t the Senate will let the bill go through as currently shaped and the President has voiced his concerns over a lot of the tariff language in the bill (much to the chagrin of the left). Don’t be so negative. We’re all in this together. The Stock Market continues to climb (albeit slowly), I’ve notice people starting to buy again. 8 – 10% of the stimulus package has gone out (I’ve noticed several ARRA projects around my town)creating a few more jobs, banks have begun to pay back loans, and all this will be followed by a slowdown and reversal of unemployment (the last to recover from a recession). Don’t let the gloom and doomers get you down.

    Hi Deborah!

    Uhh.. who is talking about socialism? Centralized state control of all economic spheres?

    Uhh.. who is talking about socialism? Centralized state control of all economic spheres?All I see is smart regulations, which are rules in other words, which are becoming more and more fair and promoting common good and human potential.

From your comments, you seem to not have a vision of what life on this planet can be like. Or if you do, it’s not evident. My own personal vision is big, as I believe knowledge piles on knowledge over time, and tolerance and wisdom increase.

And I do think people care; whatever administration is in power. Hunger, environment, health care, water, poverty / development? C’mon. We’re smarter than this; and we will figure it out. This bill is a big step and a reason to celebrate our own advancement.

  • irf01 06/26/2009 8:17pm

    This bill is a scam! 300 pages add overnight, high energy prices, a loss of jobs, and more corp taxation that will drive them oversees. Why traded good jobs that are all ready here for Green jobs! Who are these jobs really for? It is time to keep track of the people who keep voting for bills that we the people are against and VOTE THEM OUT!

    The development of innovative strategies for climate change mitigation and renewable energy is the greatest economic opportunity in America today. The United States is built for innovation, technology, and the development of new ideas to improve quality of life. Exporting these ideas and this intellectual property is the best chance for maintaining our economic dominance in the world and I think this bill is absolutely fundamental to that effort.

    hold on, I’m going to try to post on here…I think I can do it…there we go! I must be a dope, because I didn’t read the 300 page addendum at the end of the bill, but I still somehow managed to post. Hey, by the way, did you read it? Can you let us in on what it’s all about? The gist of it would probably be enough. Thanks man

    Once the legislation acually begins to penetrate the economy working families and the poor will be hit the hardest by this cap and tax bill that would result in no significant change in global mean temperature.

    Families will see electricity costs increase by roughly 90%, gasoline costs up 58%, natural gas costs up 55%

    I agree, I can’t believe that this passed when so much is at stake. Make sure you get on the phone and let them know you know how they voted. Let them know if any more money come out of your pocket that you will blame them and make sure others know that they are the ones responsible for the downfall of the American way of life and the dissolution of the American Dream! House phone numbers 202-225-3121 or 202-224-3121. Did any of them read the bill, if they did they are supernatural because there are very few minds who could absorb and understand that much information and fact check it in the limited time given to them. Shame on the Congress for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is another peice of useless legislation designed gain power for the washington eletists

    why is it polls never reflect politicions actions.

    For the 67 percent of those Americans who are opposed to this bill, check out the following link for a list of local rallies today across the country to peacefully protest:

    Don’t you just love it when people have to resort to calling us “fear” and “hate” mongerers when we present the facts? I call it a badge of honor.

    O.K. Last site, promise. I found this one today and it is actually the best one. http://www.teapartypatriots.org/Default.aspx

    If you would take some time to read information about why many Americans are opposed to this bill, you will find that we are not “hate” mongerers. We love our country, care for the poor (who will most definitely be hurt by this legislation), and are greatly concerned for our children, and grandchildren’s future. We believe in a free market, not the government’s imposed regulations and control. I can barely afford my utilities now, if this passes I do not know what we are going to do.

  • CowboyRick 06/27/2009 5:05pm

    Read the Bill, this will be devistating to what is left of our economy. We will not be able to afford the “LUXURIES” of Life such as going to work, eating, getting cool on a very HOT day and of course warm on the very cold winter days, whioch will lend our homes useless-but don’t worry because in the long run we will lose those too-if you still have one! Ethopia here we come!!

  • thecat 06/27/2009 6:14pm

    I wonder how many of the fools who voted for this piece of garbage actually read it? They must be very old and plan to die soon so they won’t be affected by the extremely high power bills and the protests of the people they have betrayed. Can’t they move the elections up sooner?

  • electtech 06/27/2009 6:46pm

    This bill is another method of the Federal Government taking over States rights. This country was founded by 13 seperate states, with differences of opinions on how to govern their individual citizens. Therefore, the founding Fathers may the Federal Government the protector of the country and only a meditator between the states. Continually we have let our federal representatives take more and more decisions from the states. It is time we stand up and say no more. It is time the states take back their rights, and let their citizens make the decisions for their future.

    This bill is nothing more than a way to steal money from taxpayers.
    Look up Al Gore, G.E. NBC and Obama for details.
    Wind turbines are made by G.E. who hope to gain money from this bill’s passing. Al Gore continues to get revenge for not being elected president and gets more rich, NBC is owned by G.E., and Obama continues to get favorable reports from the major networks, MSNBC, NBC, CNN, HLN. This bill will end in disaster as it only provides a handful of jobs to people, yet raises the costs of our energy use across the board.

  • WFPET 06/28/2009 6:20am

    Doesn’t anyone see the irony of putting the “Efficiency” or our nation in the the most inefficient hands, the government? I’ve actually read this bill. Have you congress-person? It is in itself a very inefficient attempt at controlling efficiency. Efficiency in government comes from leadership. There is not a leader among you. Otherwise the people would not be so ignorant to everything around them. Congress-persons enjoy, take advantage of, and abuse the ignorance of their people. In fact they create it.

    Perfect. Regarding the ignorance of people, this administration is doing all it can to keep people in the dark regarding the actual science on “global warming”. Yesterday on Larry Kudlow’s radio show he talked about an EPA report, that was being squased by the EPA, prepared by an EPA scientist, Alan Carlin, that discusses the flaws in the UN IPCCC report and in the EPA’s assessment of it, Check out http://cei.org/cei_files/fm/active/0/DOC062509-004.pdf

    Can’t say I’ve read the whole thing yet, but it looks very interesting and damning, and goes to show that “saving the enviornment” is not what this administration or this bill is about.

  • texascav 06/28/2009 8:38am

    Well this is another fine mess our government is putting us in. With an ecomomy already in a mess, auto companies bankrupt, etc, etc, this is just putting icing on the cake to destroy the hard working middle class. This bill only benefits G.E. and the government officials in bed with them. What a scam. Get ready to pay people…. cause everything will be costing more….. very soon. Welcome to AMERIKA another 3rd world country.

  • texascav 06/28/2009 8:44am

    When will our elected officials listen to us? The majority of citizens are and have been against this bill. Look at the votes and comments by people logged in to this site. All I can say is congress, senate, you people are being watched. The 2010 election isn’t that far off and many of you congressmen and senators may be going to the unemployment office for your pay check. “We Must Take America Back”….

    carbon dioxide causes global warming? fiction. planet earth would freeze if there were no carbon dioxide. this is basic science.

    the worst of this horrible bill is that it as agenda driven by those legislators wanting to trample our liberty and take our property. and that’s in addition to the bill being a big scam.

    Sir, despite the massive amount of rational discussion and scientific thought occurring on this forum, I have to say that you just became the champion. That was the smartest comment yet! Earth would freeze without carbon dioxide? Amazing! And to think that such a brilliant insight is just basic science – that’s just incredible.

    I knew that the Earth’s natural greenhouse effect – that is, heat-trapping gases like CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide absorbing heat radiated from the Earth’s surface and reflecting much of it back from the lower atmosphere – is largely responsible for the development of life on Earth (without this effect the average temp would decrease by about 60 degrees F), and I knew that the burning of fossil fuels throughout the industrial era and leading up to today has dramatically increased the concentration of these heat-trapping gases, causing a heating effect and changing the earth’s climate. But wow – your insight just completely blew my mind! Brilliant. Just Brilliant.

    Increased costs to business and homeowners, loss of more jobs in our country is this what we can expect from Obama/Pelosi?
