Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) Reminds Us Why Cap and Trade is Economically Absurd

Cap and trade remains to be one of the most contentious pieces of proposed domestic legislation in U.S. history. Specifically, the economics of cap and trade, and the scientific grounds on which it is being justified, have both served as the primary basis for its contentiousness. Recently, Sen.

Obama Administration Announces its Consumer Manipulating, Job Killing, Fuel Economy Mandate

Recently, the Obama administration unveiled its plan to implement a policy that the Institute for Energy Research (IER) reports would “require that new cars and light trucks get an average of 35.5 miles per gallon by 2016.” This fuel economy mandate imposed upon automakers is an irrational policy because as IER reports:

Carbon Cap and Trade Would Not Be the Same as Sulfur Cap and Trade...

Proponents of a carbon cap and trade market have contended the following: given that sulfur cap and trade has been economically efficient, let’s emulate this model with the creation of a carbon cap and trade market. This argument, however, is strictly theoretical. In other words, it disregards the difference in size between what would be a large scale, far reaching carbon cap and trade market, and an inherently small scale sulfur cap and trade market.
