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.

Obama Retreats From Goal of Cap-Trade Bill

President Barack Obama said for the first time Tuesday that legislation that would require industries to pay for emissions of greenhouse gases may need to be separated from a more popular "green jobs" bill in the Senate, a maneuver that could kill what once had been one of the administration's top policy priorities.

US Sen. Kerry says climate deal will help bill
COPENHAGEN, Dec 18 (Reuters) - An international deal to control global warming announced on Friday by U.S. President Barack Obama will propel the passage of a domestic climate change bill through the U.S. Senate, Senator John Kerry said. "With this in hand, we can work to pass domestic legislation early next year to bring us across the finish line," Kerry said.

Legislation to reduce U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas pollutants narrowly passed the House of Representatives in June, but has been stuck in the Senate for months.

However, Senator Boxer decided to take advantage of the Fort Hood incident and the continuing health care debate to quietly pass the bill, according to one Washington insider. It also helped her to have the name of the bill changed from "Cap-and-Trade," since that term has caused widespread criticism by a majority of Americans.

"Senator Boxer used the tragic {shootings at Fort Hood] to cloak the partisan passage of a bill certain to hurt a majority of American citizens," said political strategist Mike Baker.

"Boxer wields a lot of power in the Senate and she's known as an abrasive, hard-nosed infighter," he added.

from the Canada Free Press...

The title is Al Gore: Junk Science Huckster.
What I want to know is how much he is making out of all this nonsense?

Gore: The Arctic is warming at an unprecedented rate. Truth: The Arctic region warms and cools dramatically every few decades, due to shifting currents and winds. Arctic ice also melted significantly during the 1930s; it is now back to seasonally normal levels.

Gore: If the Greenland and Western Antarctic Peninsula ice sheets were to melt and collapse into the ocean, seal levels would rise 40 feet. Truth: Snow and ice are increasing in interior Greenland and Antarctica. The peninsula ice is mostly unstable sea ice, and interior Antarctica temperatures would have to rise 85 degrees (from an average annual minus-50) to cause Gore’s fanciful cataclysm.

Gore: The US West and the Southeast are experiencing prolonged severe droughts. Truth: America also endured the Dust Bowl and a 25-year drought that forced Anasazi Indians to abandon their villages.

Gore: Carbon dioxide “pollution” is acidifying our oceans. Truth: Higher CO2 levels fertilize ocean algae and improve seashell growth. In some areas upwelling can acidify surface waters with carbon-rich water from deep ocean zones.

Gore: Global warming is increasing the number of wildfires in US forests. Truth: Fires continue to threaten habitats, wildlife and homes because insects are killing trees and environmentalist legal actions prevent foresters from managing dense stands of brush and thin, diseased and dead trees.

Gore: Climate change is increasing the intensity of hurricanes. Truth: Hurricane numbers and intensity are on par with historic records and trends. Katrina was a large Category 3 hurricane when it hit a poorly prepared New Orleans.

It’s a good thing the committee didn’t put Gore under oath. He’d be sanctioned for wanton and reckless disregard for the truth – if not perjury – in both his testimony and the movie he produced to terrify young children, so that they pressure their parents into demanding passage of cap-tax-and-trade legislation.

A British High Court judge ruled that “An Inconvenient Truth” promotes “partisan political views,” was riddled with errors and falsehoods, and could not be shown any more in schools, unless accompanied by a teacher’s guide correcting information that Gore had misrepresented. Two of the most egregious distortions are especially likely to scare kids.

* Polar bears are drowning because a warming planet is melting the Arctic. Fact: Four bears drowned during a particularly violent storm, and polar bear populations are actually increasing in Alaska and Canada.

* Warming temperatures have brought malaria to Nairobi, Kenya, killing little children. Fact: Nairobi has always had malaria, and anti-insecticide policies promoted by Gore have helped perpetuate the problem.

Indeed, contrary to Gore’s false assertions, there has been no global warming for a decade – and Earth has actually cooled slightly since 2002 – even as atmospheric CO2 levels continue to rise. Climate alarmists habitually magnify the alleged risks of warmer temperatures, ignore the potential economic and health benefits of a warmer world, and obfuscate the clear dangers to agriculture and life from planetary cooling.

I am ashamed to say that Al Gore is from my home state. He couldn't even carry Tennessee when he ran for president though,and that says a lot for the people of Tennessee.I heard somewhere that when he lost the election he went into severe depression and locked himself in his basement and that's when he came up with this brain storm"Cap And Trade" I don't know how true this story is,but it sounds logical.
