Cap-and-Trade Tax is a Job Destroyer

j0316363

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.

Cap-and-Trade Will Be Part of Senate Climate Change Bill

Reid said the bill will only aim to cut pollution from energy utilities and power plants, and not from transportation, agriculture or other pollution-emitting sectors of the American economy. Although the House has passed a bill to cap carbon emissions across the entire American economy, Senate Democrats agree that such an aggressive approach would be difficult to pass.

Barack Obama turns the oil spill into his poor man's 9/11 to revive...

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste,” Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s chief of staff, famously remarked. “And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” The extent to which his master has absorbed this maxim is demonstrated by Obama’s exploitation of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

WRH Webmaster's Commentary:

Obama has not exaggerated "...the significance of the oil spill crisis to massive proportions..."

In fact, to date, he has been doing everything possible to protect BP from the inevitable financial implications of this disaster.

We do not actually have hard numbers on the extent of this catastrophe, not will we know the actual scope of its true size and impact for some time to come.

But to use this as the basis for ramming a carbon tax through Congress is utterly disgusting. It is simply a tax which will ultimately have no measurable effect on the environment, nor prevent another oil spill like the one we have just experienced in the Gulf.

Kelrry To Advance Climate Bill Minus Graham
http://onthehillblog.blogspot.com/2010/05/kerry-to-advance-climate-...
Kerry and Lieberman released a joint statement Friday announcing their plan to roll out comprehensive energy and climate change legislation this coming Wednesday. If that roll-out goes off as planned, it will mark a major milestone for the bill that has languished in the Senate for most of the last year.


Scientists Speak Out Against Climate Change Deniers' McCarthy-Like Threats
http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2010/05/06-9
In a letter published in the journal Science, more than 250 members of the US National Academy of Sciences, including 11 Nobel Prize laureates, condemned the increase in "political assaults" on scientists who argue greenhouse gas emissions are warming the planet.

The 'climategate' scandal and mistakes by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have led to a surge in attacks on climate scientists around the world.

Cap and Trade: A License Required for your Home

Beginning 1 year after enactment of the Cap and Trade Act, you won't be able to sell your home unless you retrofit it to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards of this Act. H.R. 2454, the "Cap & Trade" bill passed by the House of Representatives, if also passed by the Senate, will be the largest tax increase any of us has ever experienced.

The Congressional Budget Office (supposedly non-partisan) estimates that in just a few years the average cost to every family of four will be $6,800 per year.

Obama to Crush Economy with Massive CO2 Taxes as Early as Next Week

Abandoning all loyalty to the democratic processes this nation holds dear, President Obama has made the decision that getting energy tax legislation through Congress with the approval of the American people is just too much of a pain to bother with. Instead he will have the EPA declare as early as next week that CO2 is a dangerous global warming gas and will start regulating its emissions immediately.
