This moronic bill should just be labeled: “Cap & Tax” because that is all that it will lead to. What a joke! Making big government…..bigger!

After spending binge, White House says it will focus on deficits.
Democratic lobbyist Steve Elmendorf says the White House focus on deficit reduction could easily kill the cap-and-trade effort. “I think this means cap-and-trade has to go to the backburner,” he said.

Renewable energy is the best thing our government and citizens can invest in. It is a much better investment than GM.

Energy is in very high demand. It is consumed by all Americans.

Americans had better wake up SOON! Fight now for Drill Here Drill Now! “Fight for the farmers to have water for crops or we will have no food”. "Fight for our FREEDOM, or it will be gone! Do you really want a Government to control the Energy you use, the Food you eat, the water you drink, the Healthcare you can have, how much money you can earn, the banks were you put your money, the company you work for, the kind of vehicle you drive or don’t drive, where you can live, where you can go?? If this is how you want it, then go live in a Communist Country, they have it ALL!

“Global Warming”, oops, now called “Climate Change” is not true! Think about it they had to change the name, simply because the weather was no longer supporting their “LIES”. The EPA is controlled by the United Nations, which is totally Un-Constitutional! Real Science Experts, “Not” associated with the United Nations state this is Not True! It was funny to them many years ago when they set the stage for global warming and they have been lying ever since. They are giving away our Freedom for a One World Government and they will control us with energy and food shortages. It is “Time” to Stop trhem Now!

jen_georgia 11/09/2009 1:22pm

unbelievable!! all this talk about pollution and everything. i believe in picking up your trash, not littering and all that but do these people think about how the whole world gives off a whole 1% of pollution to the atmosphere! and that there is no such thing as global warming!! climate changes all the time and has been for years and will for years to come so why make up all these stupid bills to make the american people have to pay tax on stupid crap! like carbon dioxide! hello!! the trees plants and pretty lil flowers live off carbon dioxide! look it up! why dont they listen to the scientists! all this clean air dont pollute with co2 is stupid our surroundings need it to live and why should we have to pay triple our electric as if its not high enough already! this who thing is crazy just like the health care reform that is guna make our country go to hell if we keep letting this stuff pass! we are slowly turning into a socialist government and its so scary! :(

I’ve heard mid November or around the 11th of November.
None bills in Congress are meant to accomplish what they say they are going to accomplish. There are always ulterior motives and this on is extremely dangerous to the United States of America.


lolmao500 11/03/2009 6:05pm

So when is it brought to the senate? WHEN IS THE VOTE?

That is only a temporary solution to a permenant problem. What happens when those reserves are tapped out? What then? We need clean renewable energy now not later. We need to stop prolonging the inevitable and make the push to green energy now!

Of all “greenhouse” gasses, Carbon Dioxide is the weakest by orders of magnitude. The only truly significant “greenhouse gas” is water vapor, providing over 95% of the net effect. Carbon dioxide has about 0.12% effect overall, with other atmospheric aerosols such as Methane and other black-bodies combining to cover the other 5%. Global temperatures are primarily driven by energy input from the sun, and the only thing that has any significant effect on that input energy is the albedo (reflectance) of the earth. (Of which there is tremendous evidence…do a couple web searches.) The highest temperatures on record since 1945 were in 1997, and global temperatures according to aggregated data since then have been on a DECLINE, not an increase. Also note that the “predictions” of global warming conformists are orders of magnitude off from actual data.

I am sure that someone has mentioned this but do people realize that this bill includes every stationary carbon producing enity. If I am reading the bill right in section 700 in explains that every enity that produces 25,000 tons of CO2 are subject to this bill. Every house, resturant, store, school, hospital, manufacturing plant, everything is subject to the tax increases and credits that you need to buy. I want someone in Washington or even on the street to explain to me how this bill is going to bring this county forward.

Forcing people to change is very hard to do just wait until all the oil is gone. Then we will have to change. And then the government can make some jobs for air purification. LOL jk

Coal burning is the number one cause of alarming worldwide rise in mercury pollution of fish. Burning coal is a leading cause of smog, acid rain, global warming, and air toxics. Burning fossil fuels causes air pollution & accumulation of toxic wastes. Mother nature buried coal & oil for a reason-they are the fuels from hell. Wind & Solar energy is abundant and free from pollution and deadly toxins-they are the fuels from heaven.

Almost all of the institutions trading permits are owned by Al Gore or Goldman Sachs. This Cap and Trade system is nothing more than government-sanctioned FRAUD. This system is starting to look more and more like a criminal enterprise than a federal program. The biggest proponent of this program was Enron. I wonder why. This bill seems perfect ways for the Mafia, money-laundererers, and terrorist financiers to scam the system and gain easy funding for their nefarious activities. Anyone who administers this program, as well as anyone in Congress who votes for this fraud, should it become law, should be investigated and maybe prosecuted for fraud. These officials could keep Bernie Madoff company.

It’s a FACT that the EPA is wanting to classify water vapor (like off of dams and hydro-electric generators) as a taxable polluting money maker too. There goes even higher energy costs. How much more asinine can this BS get? I have a feeling if the public is pushed much more it isn’t going to be a pretty sight. I haven’t read anything about cattle yet but nothing would surprise me with these greedy bastards running around out of control. Basically that sums up exactly what has happened to our country, greed and bastards. I would love to see some of these greedy POS’s removed from office, preferably out of the country but I’ll take what is within reason. You know if they taxed the damn illegal immigrants (Mexican population) for methane they could cut the deficit in half eh?

I’m all for change that saves tax dollars. There are ways to fully fund clean air, like drilling oil in America and using the money from our own wells to create new jobs and new green plants. Without raising taxes on already over charged utility bills. It’s very simple really, you people are so blind to what’s going on, it’s not just about clean air, thats just a front. It’s about control for the high rollers and super rich, just one more thing to make them more powerful and controlling over you. Wake up America you make me hurt. Please tell me why they don’t use our own oil to fully fund these steps and create jobs for Americans, for the love of god this greed has got to stop ,and if it takes civil war then so be it, enough is enough.

I am not a supporter of the global warming theory. In the 1970s the big thing was that we were all headed into another ice age. It is cyclical. Get over it.
What we cannot get over is that coal and oil are going to run out, and sticking our heads in the oil-sands and pretending that it will all go away is a disasterous plan for our children. This bill has solid plans to create jobs in technologies that will allow us to stop getting oil by relying on countries that hate us, such as Iran and Venezuela.
Most bills in congress and all bills that get signed into law are compromises. This one is in better shape than most. Get it passed into law so we can start repairing the economy, then fix the detailed problems that it has.

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?

This bill will change America indefinitely. I am urging congress to not even consider this bill. This will cost America jobs-plain and simple! We have been taxed enough. Why dont you pass a bill to specify exacatly where our money is going to the penny.

kgotjesus2001 10/18/2009 7:06am

Agenda 21 is about population control. It has nothing to do with saving the planet from climate change!

kgotjesus2001 10/18/2009 7:04am

Agenda 21

kgotjesus2001 10/18/2009 7:03am

What MOST people do not understand is that this bill WILL DESTROY OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY! This is not about saving the planet! It is about GLOBAL GOVERNANCE! All we are seeing is the smoke screen! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlTagSZPm7o WE MUST STOP THIS OR OUR CONSTITUTION WILL NOT BE WORTH THE PAPER IT IS WRITTEN ON!!!!!!!! It all has to do with AGENGA 21. Look it up. It has been on the UN website for years. Our government leaders (the elitest, eugenisists) WANT a GLOBAL GOVERNANCE. A NEW WORLD ORDER!
