This bill is another bill that is cap and trade, which redistributes our tax money to others who may not contribute to society. I will not be taxed for air or energy.

The purpose of the bill is to drive energy prices high enough to reduce consumption. In effect, consumers would be forced to pay more for less energy. Higher energy costs would spread throughout the economy as producers everywhere try to cover their higher production costs by raising their product prices…, further impacting consumers.APA attempts to shield the economic pain from consumers by passing two-thirds of the carbon permit revenue back to the consumer through energy discounts or direct rebates. This leaves 33 percent of the revenue to go elsewhere. Regardless, these rebates would clearly not compensate for the higher energy prices that impact all the goods and services consumers purchase.

If Al Gore really believed in Global Warming, he would be living in a tiny mud house with a grass roof powered by wind/solar energy (or with Ed Begley Jr. because I don’t think Al Gore would ever ride a bicycle to power his own toaster). Instead, he just purchased a SECOND energy-eating mansion (6,500 square feet with a price tag of $8,875,000) overlooking the Pacific in Montecito, CA just up the coast from Santa Barbara. Did he forget that the melting polar ice caps are soon going to swallow up the coastlines? The new Gore mansion comes with a swimming pool, spa, fountains, six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Let’s not forget his other home in Tennessee that “burns energy at 12 times the rate of the ordinary U.S. household, and uses more electricity in one month than most American homes use in a year”.

Obama and freinds know that if a piece of proposed legistlation gets “bad press” (i.e. contents & effects become public), they will change the name attempting to fool us. Except for those of us watching these dispicable bozos at work, most will be fooled.

Ever notice that they pick names for bills that sound so good and so noble?
If they were even half-honest, they would at least call these moves toward total government control (naturally leading to tyranny) what they really are. But they know that only the most leftist, socialistic, & communistic people would support the bills. And, that the bills would NEVER pass with that minority.

Expect a “sea change” in congress next year!

We need to vote for those who will undo the damage this group of socialists has been (and will be) imposing upon us and get us back on track to employment, properity and,most importantly, FREEDOM!

NomadFox 05/16/2010 7:19am

How many times is the name going to change before this bill is killed? It’s a scam, read it!
Cap and trade puffs of smoke, started in Chicago by Obama and a few friends “CCX”.
“We the People” are on to your scam!!!! Propaganda will only work on the stupid. I pray there is enough intelligent to see through this phony bill.

In early 2008, Obama said “my energy prolicy will necessarily cause electric bills to skyrocket.”. Google this quotation for video of him saying it.

Where in this statement can anyone with more than 2 brain cells firing think that energy will become “more affordable”?

I am first a citizen of the United States and of the world a distant second.
This country allows me freedoms not seen ANYWHERE else on this globe.
And I will fight this current regime who keeps trying to take them away!

As far as the public remaining ignorant and lazy… This gov’t WANTS US THIS WAY! People like that are easy to fool!
So don’t be ignorant! There are many millions more like me out there and we are becoming larger everyday!

Then why did a group of climate scientists recently publish a report showing global cooling over the last decade?

It made the news… But if you blinked, you’d miss it.

Since when is nuclear power a non-remewable resource?

If the world could build enough nuclear power plants to replace oil & hydro powered plants, it would take many 1,000s of years to deplete the unranium on the planet!

We do need to move away from oil, coal, and natural gas.
But this will happen “naturally” by the free enterprise system.
Cars like the Prius are only the beginning.

Just like the so-called healthcare law recently enacted, this is just another money and power grab for the gov’t and it’s close friends!

This Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s agenda is to take U.S. money and power from us.

Science is not a democracy.
As long as credible scientists voice doubts, NO ONE should accept a “theory” as fact. These scientists exist globally. But we hear little about them due to the media that’s owned by members of the “powers that be”. Sadly, these clowns are in our universities too!

This whole movement is financed and powered by billioniares here and abroad.
They would love nothing more than take this country down and divide the spoils of wealth and power between themselves. How do you think Al Gore made his $100s of millions? He stands to make BILLIONS more!

You better take of those colored sunglasses…

Well clejuene, I guess you do not remember (or maybe even know about) Obama’s comment on this (then called Cap & Trade) bill. It’s on video and millions have seen it.

Our now president said in early 2008 that;
“My energy policy will necessarily cause electric bills to skyrocket.”.

What he didn’t mention was the increased cost for EVERYTHING ELSE including food, medicine, clothing, etc.. It takes “energy” to produce and deliver EVERYTHING we consume and EVERY service we need.

Does $10.00 per gallon gasoline appeal to you?
How about $9.00 for a loaf of regular (white or wheat) bread?

You must be RICH!!!

Sorry, I posted below AlleeA. I still assume this is a tongue in cheek response. IPCC, Penn State Frauds. You need to look to real scientists,
not Al Gore or the morons from IPCC and Michael Mann at Penn State.

I take your comment as tongue in cheek, IPCC and Climategate. Guess we didn’t get to the children before they were indoctrinated into the promise land of windmills and NO co2. How foolish the young are. This must be why they are still at home into their late 20’s and beyond.

There are a lot of reasons to be environmentally friendly. Stopping our dependance on oil is one. We also all know that Global warming is an alarmist scam to grab power. This bill is how the oil companies (That’s right the oil companies) grab power. If you are a real environmentalist you will block this bill. And while your at it get ride of your Prius. Its oversized batteries are killing its fuel mileage and contaminating my water. Geo Metro’s have been getting better mileage since the early 90’s.

There’s a lot more that goes into the environment than the world getting a little hotter. Global warming is natural process and accelerated by our activities. We could really benefit from alternative sources for a cleaner earth. Don’t feel so entitled to destroy something just because you can. We all could use a little assistance to have affordable, clean resources to be a better global citizen. We can’t rely on the general public to make the ethical decision because they remain ignorant and lazy, plus we are just putting children futures at stake.

History books can’t tell us much, there’s much more research to be done. Climate change has to be studied for at least 30 years to able to determine a trend. Individuals are in denial if they say “global warming” doesn’t exist, it’s a natural process being accelerated by human activity – but we have yet to know how much our activity is contributing to the warming trends they have found in the last 50 years. We can’t rely on one guy at MIT not to do something about our pollution and destroying the Earth that was here before us. Ever looked into the damage we have done to our oceans? Keep driving those gas guzzlers that not only pollute, but encourage our consumption of foreign oil and those big bad corporations have corporate responsibility programs for a reason now – because they started getting slack for their sustainability. Want to know who’s doing good? Go see who have transparency reports for the public, other than that they just will lobby a politician to get what they want.

Although environmentally friendly business practices should be encouraged, cap and trade is the wrong way to do so.

The government needs to stop using environmentalism as an excuse to extend totalitarian control over our lives.

Which is worse: living on a planet that’s a tiny bit warmer? Or living under a totalitarian government that controls everything you buy, everything you do?

Give me liberty, or give me death.

Another massive bill. About 800 pages now… I’m certain it drones on about a lot more than clean energy in there. You could even hide a bomb in that stack of papers.

I’m all for clean energy, being independent of fossil fuels (they ARE finite in supply), and jobs. Just not from the government. Government workers are paid at taxpayer expense. They should be working honestly in the private sector, being paid voluntarily by their employers, not funded by government extortion.

As for the transition to clean energy, government intervention can only screw it up. There are various companies making solar panels out there. Private citizens often voluntarily install solar panels to save on energy. Why does the government have to butt in? There is already a private transition to alternative energy taking place. When oil supply falls short and prices rise, if that transition isn’t already fast, you can bet your ass it will be.

In the meantime, WTF 800 PAGES?!

True but the problem with legislation is the numerous bad things hidden behind the one good thing.

Yes we all agree we should be energy independent but this is not the way to do it. Drill in ANWAR and the Gulf of Mexico, build more nuclear facilities which are now safer than they used to be. We don’t need green jobs to be legislated, they will happen automatically when everything else is allowed.

The Global Warming Cult has been exposed, any politician supporting anything to the contrary is on the payroll and needs to be replaced.

Global warming is not the only topic covered in this bill. This bill is a first step leading the United States, and hopefully the world, to sustainable and independent energy sources. Oil, coal, natural gas, and nuclear power make up the vast majority of worldwide energy sources. All of these sources of energy are nonrenewable, and are disrupting and depleting natural resources and services. They all will be gone within 150 years. Soon, we must find energy that is clean, produces little waste, and is renewable. There simply is no other option.

This bill begins the transition to the renewable energy we need. Also, switching to these renewable energy resources would almost completely erase greenhouse gas emissions. In other words, if global warming exists it will be stopped by this new energy. If global warming is false, we acquire a renewable, cheap, independent, and efficient energy system.

Lindzen is just another climate skeptic. We’ve all heard of him before. Hes the one from MIT. And if hes from MIT, well, then, he must be right.

U.S. Senate Bill 1733 – Promotes Nuclear Power & Coal Industries While Enriching Venture Capitalists, Banks & Wall Street at Taxpayer Expense
SAY “NO” TO BRINGING ANY NUCLEAR WASTE INTO THE UNITED STATES FOR PROCESSING & STORAGE. (U.S. House of Representatives Hearings on October 16, 2009 Broadcast on C-SPAN. This critical issue should be addressed today before this becomes a standard policy of the United States.
The United States, under President Obama, is allowing U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu to make agreements with foreign countries (already alleged to have signed an agreement with Italy), to bring in radioactive waste into the United States for processing and storage.
The United States is now in the process of importing low-level radioactive waste from foreign countries. Energy Secretary Chu has signed an agreement in 2009, with Italy, to take their radioactive waste.
