Cap-and-Trade Tax is a Job Destroyer


By now most Americans should have heard about the global warming cap-and-trade tax the liberals in Washington want to impose on the American people.

Oh, they’re putting the cap-and-trade tax into the proper politically correct language to make it as palatable as possible to the American people (”We’re just going to stick it to those evil electric and other companies, not our beloved ‘little guy’.”).

When rational people highlighted the fact that the cap-and-trade cost these companies get “stuck” with will get passed along to the consumer, the liberals had an answer for that, too: “We’ll we’ll give you a rebate after we take the money from those evil companies.”

What many may not realize is that they would likely have to wait a year or more before getting a rebate (which does you a lot of good when your electric bill has gone up 40% and you have to pay it right now), if you ever see such a rebate from sticky, inefficient government fingers at all.

Worshippers of the Religion of Anthropogenic Global Warming also want you to believe this economic and taxpayer straight jacket will be a good thing because it will supposedly create jobs in the environmentalism sector.

The merits of creating “jobs” that don’t do anything useful or produce anything useful is debatable, but then, so is the contention that any net jobs will be created at all.

The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis predicts job losses resulting from the Lieberman-Warner cap-and-trade greater than 900,000 in some years.

Members of the Congressional Western Caucus and House Committee on Natural Resources are gearing up to fight this legislation. They will be working with Professor Gabriel Calzada Álvarez, author of the Spanish Green Jobs study, to address proven flaws in the Democrats’ model for U.S. green job creation. Spain’s programs resulted in a net loss of jobs.

According to a recent release from Congressman Rob Bishop (R-UT)

Dr. Calzada’s study, along with others, has conclusively shown this claim to be false. In reality, cap-and-tax proposals would lead to over three million net jobs lost by 2025, even after factoring in any new ?green jobs created in the renewable energy sector. Republicans offer energy alternatives that will create long-term, high-paying jobs through affordable domestic energy development.

The release also says that 9 out of 10 “green jobs” created in Spain over the last decade are now gone. What’s more, Spain spent $753,778 to create each job, including subsidies of $1,319,783 per wind industry job.

Such costly “jobs” may prove hard for the American taxpayer to sustain–especially when he’s already busy paying the existing tax burden and repaying the trillions our government has borrowed in the past three months or so.

Fortunately, according to a recent article from the Wall Street Journal, Democrats may not have the votes they need to get this socialist job-destroying legislation out of the House Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment.

Let us hope that remains the case, and this bill may remain there until it dies. It is based on a socialist fantasy, is hostile to the American economy and the American taxpayer, and deserves to die an ignoble death.

But even if it does die in subcommittee, Americans must remain vigilant against resurrections of this attack on their prosperity.

Liberals are nothing if not persistent.

I'm not residing in the US but this is not unique to the States, similar policy is being rolled out here in Australia and indeed all around the world.

I believe the cause of global warming is open to debate, probably a mixture of human influence and natural cycles both on planet and off. Even if human activities have nothing to do with it, I still believe in a need for moving to clean renewable energy sources for many important reasons.

Burning oil and coal at the rate that we do is deadly for our health. Remember Beijing Olympics, officials worked round the clock for months prior to improve air quality just enough as not to kill athletes stone dead with their huge lung volume capacities and all.

However taxing us to make the move, and big business crying poor and claiming it will cost jobs etc, is just excuses to bleed us even more. There has always been a few industries like oil and logging who have cried foul whenever it is suggested we make transitions from those practices into alternatives.

These claims are nothing more than propaganda to ensure ongoing obscene profits for those concerned. No other group of people, other than these large polluting corporations, are able to deny change when it comes. Computerization, machine automation, robotics are all displacing labor jobs constantly, it doesn't mean less jobs, it means people move on and become programmers instead of wood cutters.

We more than have the necessary technologies and capabilities at this point in time to migrate into renewable energies and additionally utilize efficient products and systems. And whats more, doing so can be quite profitable, all that is required is the demand for it. But people aren't demanding it because they are swallowing the fear put forward by Gooferment and Industry that the economy will hemorrhage and stop if we even think about it. It's just another in the endless string of lies we are fed to fuck us all over.

Congress just Declare a new Tax called Cap and Trade for climate change?

The traitors in Washington DC under the lies of Globull warming just declared a new money scheme for the criminals on Wall St.

According to Ben Lieberman
Beware of Cap and Trade Climate Bills
The effect of such a cap would be to impose rationing of coal, oil, and natural gas on the American economy. Each covered utility, oil company, and manufacturing facility would be given allowances based on past emissions or some other formula.
All the people that have fell for the Green save the planet lie are cheering. They do not understand what this means to their wallet. Anytime Wall St Bankers, and a corrupt Congress pass a bill American lose.

Ben Lieberman ended his article with the truth.
Cap and trade bills are nothing short of a government re-engineering of the American economy. And S. 2191, with its aggressive targets to reduce emissions from fossil fuel use, would put the nation on a path of serious economic harm not justified by any benefits.

If you don't want to be paying 2-3 times more to heat your house this coming winter. I highly recommend you tell the your Senator to vote no on S. 2191. Don't be fool by the talk. The Congress bill was 1200 pages plus another 300 pages added. Anytime this much paper is put in a bill the average Americans trying to support his or her family loses. It time people stop falling for the lies that Government can fix problems. Our Government is an expert at wasting your tax dollars and ruining America with good intentions.

comment from an email:

This is tyranny plain and simple with no regards to the continuation of the USA as we know it. If we let this ugly legislation succeed, it will put us all under so much government control, we won't know what to do next.

It is our duty and obligation to stop this now. Not only should we express our concern about this, we need to let them know we are going to kick their butts out.
