The question is: Why?House Democrats release climate planHouse leaders released Tuesday a broad plan to reduce carbon emissions and set renewable energy production mandates, the first detailed proposal in what is expected to be one of Democrats' toughest battles in the coming years.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi's point men on climate change House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman and Energy and Rep Edward Markey, chair of the panel's energy subcommittee detailed the plan to reducing carbon emissions through a trading scheme, a measure President Barack Obama has made a cornerstone of his domestic agenda but which has been loosely defined throughout the year.
The plan calls for a reduction of carbon emissions of 20 percent by 2020 using carbon trading system and requires utilities to purchase 25 percent of their energy from renewable fuel sources by 2025. By 2050, the lawmakers want to reduce U.S. carbon emissions by 83 percent.
1) No one ever demonstrated a warmer climate is disadvantageous to the United States. That's all that matters. Then again, they never showed it was disadvantageous to the rest of the world.
2) The earth has entered a cooling trend. Ergo, global warming, the concern allegedly prompting all this interest in controlling people....er I mean reducing carbon emissions, isn't an issue.
So, why are the Democrats rushing to do as much damage to the American economy as they can as fast as they can?
