I should have realized a Minnesota Democrat that didn't find any thing wrong about voting for Al Frankin, wouldn't have the smarts to see the indulgances analogy to Algores carbon credit scam.
But then, I may be reading this wrong, and you are in this program so you can sell your credits to to the power company. Of course the power company will still be polluting as much as before, but now YOU will be gaining $$$, and they will be into a feel good attitude.
I doubt I can make you understand the folly of this hoax any more than I can explain how your Al Frankin vote was as un-American as anything you ever did in your life. Hope he makes you proud.
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
Do you seriously believe that there is no negative effect to pollution of the air? If there is a negative effect, why should it not be incorporated into the price? Why should those causing the pollution through their consumption and production decisions (including me) be getting a free ride at the expense of those who prefer our air in a more natural form? As an asthmatic, I can honestly say that pollution from car exhausts costs me between $1-5000 per year. That is an air pollution tax that I pay. Why shouldn't some or all of that cost be included in the cost of pollutants?
Ok so global warming is killing the polar bears by melting the ice caps and at the same time Florida had record manatee deaths due to cold water..... So do we save the polar bears with cap and trade at the expence of the manatees? Making it cooler for the polar bears also means cooler for us down here and thus more manatee deaths. I am pretty sure there are fewer manatees than polar bears.
I know dnf will like this "redneck" comment, but we have had 6 days in a row with temps in the 30's here in S Florida. This has NEVER happened in my 45 years AND the weatherman said this morning that conditions MAY be right for SLEET on Saturday. Freaking SLEET in S.W. Florida!
