    Absolutely NOT! We need to wake-up. We’re have been buffalo’d by the Global Warming Mafia. Time for a “Change” to the constant hysteria that costs Taxpayers $Billions of useless government mandated expenditures. It never ends. Well-intentioned stupidity.

    Energy policy goes way beyond Global Warming. Cutting dependence on foreign oil keeps money out of the hands of nations that may be antithetical towards our overall foreign policy goals. Energy price variance through rampant and unregulated markets for speculation cause a great deal of economic hardship throughout our country. Curbing emissions reduces health problems such as asthma.

    Given all of these reasons, I do not think we can afford to be so myopic and simply focus on Global Warming as the sole reason for energy policy reform in this nation.

    Let the market sort out “green” job creation. It has with every other technology that’s been in demand before. Even big oil has jumped on the green train now, so one can expect they will have to appease their customer-base to survive competitively now. We don’t need a bill for this.

    The Crisis du Jour is no longer man-made global-warming, but free-market-made-economic-collapse. When will Americans wake up? Whenever MSM cries “crisis” and especially when a leftist yells “catastrophe” you can be sure that there will soon be legislation that robs you of even more of the freedoms that you were promised in the U.S. Constitution. “Average Temperature” increase = NOT. So, let’s stop spending tax payers money on “green” and get back to free-markets. We don’t need the government deciding which industries we need and which ones we don’t.
    All the Federal Government needs to do is STOP blocking the building of Nuclear Power Plants, STOP blocking the drilling for oil HERE. STOP blocking the manufacture of Clean-Coal power plants. WE DON’T NEED WIND-MILLS, WE DON’T NEED SOLAR FARMS.

    Mr. Reid and the co-sponsors of this bill are blind to the fact that most people in our country can’t afford an immedieate switch to “green” technology for our transportation needs, even if it was availabe. They have gone beyond reasonable in their expectations as to what can be accomplished in transitioning from a fosil fuels based economy to one based on renewable energy sources(many of which are not yet perfected).

    The Democrats in both the House and Senate have blocked increased production of fosil fuels in our country and will attempt to force an unreasonable increase in the cost of goods and services that are dependent on the use of fosil fuels, all in the name of decreasing our Nations dependance on foreign produced petrolium.

    Let us drill. Let the market decide which way to go. While the government intrusion may prod us along we will miss out on any new ideas because we are being held hostage by today’s technology. Remember that years ago a computer was outrageously expensive and took up an entire room…today you can hold one in you hand…and they hardly cost a thing. Let us be so we can grow.

    I could care less about which political party has interest in this bill. the bottom line is, we need to reduce or eliminate our demand on foreign oil. if by promoting and funding renewable green energy is a way towards that goal, so be it. Global warming doesn’t have to be real. CO2 emissions have steadily increased over time and the only thing that is good for is algae.
