Carbon dioxide? Wasn't there a time in Earth's history when there was more CO2 than oxygen? Didn't that help create the plant life? But now that man creates a tiny portion of all the CO2 produced by the planet, it is suddenly a huge problem and the US has to pay a lot of money to...."someone" because we "produce the most of the small percentage that Man creates"?

Carbon credits are the elephant in the room. How does paying money to "buy" carbon credits from someone like Al Gore (so you can continue to produce CO2) help reduce CO2? What is so special about Gore and his minions that they can "sell" the ability to produce CO2?

Not that paying that money to the government in the form of taxes would help (much), as the gub'mint would just put the money into the general fund and spend it on slush funds and not on anything particular like, oh say, research to help reduce the actual production of CO2.

Low information voters cost us dearly, but then so does a press that doesn't do the job intended for it when the Founding Fathers gave them the First Amendment.
