    The call for a carbon cap is really a call for an energy cap. So, on Earth Day, let us ask environmentalists the following 6 questions:

    1. Once that 80% cut in emissions becomes permanent, which hospitals will you shut down?

    2. How much fuel will you allot us to drive to work?

    3. How much computer time will we get?

    4. Can we afford air-conditioning below 90 degrees--or heat above 40?

    5. Will the hospital have electricity when we need it--or will we have “sustainable” hospitals like the ones in Africa that are powered by solar panels, where doctors must choose between refrigerating perishable medicines and powering the operating equipment?

    6. And what about the 1.5 billion people around the world who are suffering and dying for lack of electricity--will they renounce coal, oil, and natural gas for the sake of a static global temperature?
