    ....."The U.S. unilaterally trying to reduce emissions by 2050 [or] 2070, as various bills call for, will not have any detectable impact on the climate, pure symbolism – that's point one," he debates. "Point two, now we have a host of government and private sector studies that have come out now just showing that Lieberman-Warner will raise home energy [costs]...[and] it's going to cost jobs all across the board, there is no way to slice it," warns Morano...

    How can the author possibly call this a unilateral action by the U.S. when almost all the other nations of the world signed the Kyoto Treaty in 1997? This is a ridiculous and untrue statement.

    And you know, nothing wrong with having clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. I remember from Boy Scouts to always leave a campsite better than you found it, so the next troop would have a nice place to camp. Shouldn't we do as much for our children and grandchildren?

    "Shouldn't we do as much for our children and grandchildren?"

    Oh but we don't have to do that, you can do it for my children and grandchildren if I send you some money - isn't that what the plan is now, if you have a large carbon footprint, you can buy credits from people that don't :BangHead:

    Our governor wants to go with 25% renewable energy in the next few years - however we can't count the hydroelectric that we've been producing for years. Most of the state is on hydro, it can't be counted so basically he wants to cut what's left bu 25% - basically shut down a bunch.

    He mandated CA car standards even though EPA told him there was no need to. He mandated the state run 10% ethonal, now cars are running less efficiently and costing us more - love the government! NOT!
