Most of America I think has gone past the sticker shock phase and went straight to buyer’s remorse.
The current Presidential polling is in at 28% strongly approves and 41% strongly disapprove.
Congress is even worse at 22% approval and dropping fast. The Economy is number 1 on the minds of Americans. Not Universal Healthcare or Carbon sequestering.

By anyone’s measure Cap and Trade will push our already mired Economy further into the muck. Anyone using “carbon” any form will be taxed for its use by forcing you to purchase Carbon Credits.
Oh and who do you purchase them from the CHICAGO CLIMATE EXCHANGE or CCX. Al Gore is a part owner in CCX as is Fannie Mae and Goldman Sachs.

There are Billions if not Trillions of dollars at stake. Obama himself said Americans energy bills will “necessarily skyrocket” under his plan. But so will everything else. Any Industry using something other than Natural gas will be forced to buy credits. This cost will be funneled down to the end consumer.

Joel Rogers the architect behind the Van Jones Apollo Alliance along with Gerald Hudson, executive director of SEIU (also on the Apollo Alliance advisory board); Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, CEO of Green For All (created by Van Jones), and Doris Koo, CEO of Enterprise Community Partners, along with a collection of other union and community activist all blatantly acknowledge that power and profit are the only real benefits to be had.
Joel Rogers acknowledged himself that this was mostly just a scam.. His words: "I hope you all realized that you could eliminate every power plant in America today and you can stop every car in America. Take out the entire power generation sector and you still would not be anywhere near 80 percent below 1990 levels. You would be closer to around 60 percent... it would be around 68 percent and this is with bringing the economy to a complete halt… basically."

For this they will willingly trash our economy for what benefits to us?
China, India and Russia have all backed away from this. Even if we shut America down and become a “zero” generator it would only reduce the total Carbon emissions for manmade carbon emitters by 3% and best case would only effect a reduction of temp by .031c if you believe there is a correlation between the two.

It an old saying now.. Follow the Money. This is not about Global Warming this about the RICH getting very RICH. Power and Control.
