    It means that they're all multi-national corporation that are devising models to allow them to operate in countries that have the foolish carbon credit system established. A system that unfortunately may one day be adopted by the U.S. Its planning, that is all.

    What does this mean? Does this suggest that big business is moving away from its Republican ties, or that climate change will eventually become accepted within the GOP? Is this simply companies engaging in rational self interest, preparing for the future that is inevitably coming?

    Personally I welcome this attitude.


    Global warming alarmism has been a huge windfall for the oil companies. That you are seeing it for the first time does not mean this attitude is new.

    I wonder what ubber lefty Coral Davenport, the author of this anti-GOP rhetoric, thinks about Tesla making more from selling Carbon Off-set Credits, than from making cars? It would appear her creds are a bit tainted, when the Carbon Scam befuddles her.

    Teslaís First-Ever Profit Came Thanks To Selling Zero Emission Credits To Competitors, But It Insists Itís Not Dependent On Bartering CO2 Offsets

    Tesla

    Just ask any manufacturing business owner in California about factoring Carbon cost into future business plans, and one will understand what a hack Davenport is to try and attach this appropriate planning to anything related to a political party.
