“We have become increasingly concerned that EPA and many other agencies and countries have paid too little attention to the science of global warming. EPA and others have tended to accept the findings reached by outside groups, particularly the IPCC and the CCSP, as being correct without a careful and critical examination of their conclusions and documentation…”
This statement, from the EPA, and released by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, says it all. Cap and Trade is not about saving the planet. If it was, lawmakers, and those who pray at the altar of the Church of Environmentalism, would be concerned that the bill in front of the House does near nothing to help the planet. Lawmakers are not concerned with the planet, they are looking for new ways to tax the citizens, and by doing so, make them dependent on government for relief from those taxes. Cap and Trade is about control, by government, of you.
