WASHINGTON, D.C. — Federal strategies for tackling climate change are doomed to fail without concerted efforts to keep Americans out of their cars — efforts that will necessarily include a greater emphasis on public transit, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told Senate lawmakers Tuesday.Walter Williams: Why the rush to OK ‘cap and trade’ in the Senate? - Springfield, IL - The State Journal-Register
“Cap and trade” is first a massive indirect tax on the American people and hence another source of revenue for Congress. More importantly “cap and trade” is just about the most effective tool for controlling most economic activity short of openly declaring ourselves a communist nation and it’s a radical environmentalist’s dream come true.Hansen Agonistes - Steven Hayward - Planet Gore on National Review Online
So why the rush and the press on the Senate? Increasing evidence is emerging that far from there being global warming, the Earth has been cooling and has been doing so for 10 years.
It's pretty clear that climate uber-campaigner James Hansen has become the Cindy Sheehan of global warming — great to have around in opposition, but shoved into the shadows when Democrats are in power.American Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman on climate change bill - Part 2 | The Packer
In conclusion, we remain very concerned about the broad potential adverse impacts of cap-andtrade on agriculture. Even though some say agriculture will benefit, that will depend to a great degree on where the producer is located, what he or she grows, and how his or her business model can take advantage of any provisions in the legislation. Not every dairy farmer can afford to capture methane – it is a capital-intensive endeavor. Not every farmer lives in a region where wind turbines are an option. Not every farmer can take advantage of no-till. Not every farmer has the land to set aside to plant trees.
Yet, every farmer has production costs to meet. Nearly all of us rely on fertilizer. We all drive tractors. We all use energy in our production. We know our costs will rise. And frankly, we are very concerned about the impact of this legislation on our livelihood.
