The U.S. Senate is lurching onward with Cap-and-Trade legislation - a massive energy tax that will dramatically raise the cost of just about everything you produce or consume, (according to some figures by as much as 3,000 per year for the average household) all to reduce "global warming", which is NOT PROVEN. As a matter of fact, the earth has been COOLING since 2001. That's why they call it "climate change" now.
Peter Ferrara, director of budget and entitlement policy at the Institute for Policy Innovation, writing for The American Spectator, explains Cap-and-Trade this way:
"Every business involving CO2 emissions will have to buy permits from the government for the amount of such emissions, which will be sold in open auctions, where the permit price will be bid up. But the government will limit the number of these permits, and consequently the maximum amount of CO2 emissions allowed. Indeed, over time the government will clamp down [hard] on the amount of CO2 emissions allowed by the permits. . . ."
To put it simply, Cap-and-Trade launches a huge new tax on the making or consuming of just about everything.
Here is an article from the Wall Street Journal about the collapse of the myth of global warming. It puts to rest that lie.
