Cap and Trade Enthusiasts Flinch

It seems like only a few weeks ago that cap and trade's BFF Sen. Lindsey Graham was extolling the virtues of this economic trainwreck.  That's because it was only a few weeks ago.

It Came From the EPA

Scott Brown's election may have halted the specter of cap and trade for now, but that doesn't mean the Administration is stepping back from energy regulation any day soon.  The Administration isn't going to let a little thing like the fact that cap and trade would gut the economy, the fact that many oppose the plan, the fact that this opposition is growing, and the fact that voters in Massachusetts just sent a resounding message of disapproval of such big government machinations.

MA Senate Race: Beyond Health Care

It's important to remember that the results of yesterday's election in Massachusetts have consequences beyond the immediate threat of ObamaCare. The election of Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate may very well have thwarted already struggling cap and trade legislation.  The New York Times has the story:

California Looks to the Ballots to Suspend State Cap and Trade Scheme

If it's true that states are the "laboratories of democracy" California's cap and trade experiment should be considered a failed one and the federal government ought to think twice about implementing the same economy-killing measures across the nation.  The Wall Street Journal has the story of a possible ballot measure to at least temporarily repeal California's cap and trade carbon tax.

White House Bullying Congress into Cap and Trade

The EPA's findings on carbon dioxide earlier this week came as a surprise to few.  And the timing, in light of Copenhagen, couldn't be better for the Administration (sheer coincidence, we're sure).  Now it looks like the Administration isn't just going to bask in the sunlight of getting something done just in time for Obama's big speech in Oslo.  The White House is http://www.foxnews.com/politics

Policy Implications of Climategate

With over 4,000 documents to sort through, it's certain that we'll continue to uncover gems like "I can't see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report, Kevin and I will keep them out somehow - even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature  is!" (email from Dr. Phil Jones to Dr. Michael Mann of the Pennsylvania State University on how to exclude scientists with whom they disagreed from the IPCC process).  Together, the Climategate files present a disturbing window into the climate change scientific community, a place where:

How Will Cap and Trade Effect You?

Cap and trade is being called the largest tax hike increase in U.S. history and its effects will fall hardest on states that depend on industry.   The Consumer Energy Alliance is holding events next week across Michigan and South Dakota to dig into the ramifications cap and trade will have on business.  Lunch will be provided.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about what this legislation could mean for your business and family.
