The biggest tax increase in the world to solve a problem that may or may not be solvable and that may or may not be happening. It is completely undefensible and rash! This is what is happening. Links to the data/proof can be found at this web site.
Temperatures are in decline
Polar ice extent is near normal
The oceans are cooling
There are fewer violent storms
Solar activity is changing
Besides, trees love CO2.

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.--Thomas Jefferson
For all you guys who bought houses which were built before "Green" certification, good luck when you go to sell, because you're in for a nice little surprise.
And if even if you built a house recently that's up to "Green" standards (as I did), well, the whim of Washington bureaucrats being what they are, you may well be in for that surprise as well . . .
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
These cap and trade morons are like the twits who think somehow fines were hurting big tobacco, when in reality big tobacco around that time owned Kraft and other food and beverage brands.So it wasn't big tobacco who was paying the fines it was the person buying the cheese,milk,cereal, and other foods and beverages.Companies pass the cost of doing business onto the consumer.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
