Posted on 05/28/2014 9:49:45 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Despite being soundly rejected a few years ago, cap-and-trade will soon get its U.S. encore but not in Congress. The Obama administration will likely use its executive power to unilaterally impose carbon dioxide emissions trading systems.
The plan is being sold as a flexible one. By allowing states a menu of policy options to meet federal mandates, the standards will ostensibly meet the unique needs of each individual state. But the stark reality behind the proposal is that it will be a boon for states that have already imposed cap-and-trade systems which are overwhelmingly Democratic states.
While President Obama continues to pedal around his climate agenda in the hopes of solidifying a presidential legacy, concerns about how American businesses and consumers will actually meet these costly rules have been met with only silence, said Laura Sheehan, spokeswoman for the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electrcity.
Given the current path were on, the administration is gambling with the livelihoods of hardworking Americans and is threatening to tip our country over the edge in costly and unreliable energy policies, Sheehan said. And once we go over that ledge, theres no coming back up.

For the list.
Obozo is doing everything in his power to destroy the US.
This has got to stop. Now.
“Obozo is doing everything in his power to destroy the US.”
The groundwork has been carefully laid by the left. The only way Americans will awaken from their current stupor is for the country to come crashing down, around them.
It will happen.
He has been saying that if Congress doesn’t act, he will. What he means is if Congress doesn’t act the way he wants them to, he will rule anyway.
Everyone in this administration needs to be in prison
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
And still Congress does nothing...
Interesting. What other types of fines/costs/charges/fees/taxes can a president invent on his own?
Yep, pretty soon having heat and AC may be a luxury.
But you know what? That's not going to happen, at least not by us anyway, because we can no more lower the percentage than we can raise it because the freakin' atmosphere is 5 QUADrillion metric tons which might as well be infinity when it comes to man, ESPECIALLY when we are competing with a plant population that is trillions of times more populous than humans.
Gee, look at all that green. Obviously that must be from a bunch of people wearing green shirts, or maybe it's all green cars.
FACT: Global warming is yet scientifically unproved. Any regulation enacted by the EPA based on unproven science would be fraud and any enforcement there of would be criminal. But, since the resident in the WH is a criminal..............
It’s all about money, the so called “scientists” want their grant money, the communists in government want the taxes, and the charlatans like Al Gore want to make more millions. That guy is worth half a billion so far and the last time he held a 9-5 job was 14 years ago.
I’ve been saying this very thing since before the Obama catastrophe. Look at the post 9-11 patriotic groundswell the last real wake-up call, it was a response to painful stimulus. We in this society are so removed from this kind of discomfort that the normalcy bias does not allow the majority to contemplate where we are headed.
The only thing that will create a sea change in the majority attitude is real abject pain. The last thing I want is for this country to go though the kind of pain that’s coming but short of that there will be no change.
I just hope we get it over with soon before another generation is indoctrinated to Marxism and we still remember conservatism, capitalism and constitutionalism.
Wouldn’t it be easier for him to just aim all of our nuclear missiles on the US instead of getting rid of us slowly?
“I just hope we get it over with soon before another generation is indoctrinated to Marxism and we still remember conservatism, capitalism and constitutionalism”
My grandson is in high school in West TX. He showed me a handout given to him in geography class stating that man made global warming is a fact.
Point well taken, but the salient issue is that no agency can tax. Only the congress and then, only the House can initiate a law to generate revenue. None of this will pass constitutional muster.
He thinks we deserve torture to pay for the sins of this nation.
One of the Founders of the Weather Channel wanted to sue Algore for fraud. I wish he had done. All the evidence is on the side of the deniers of BS.
AND the was a Government Job. Has he "ever" held a "real" job?
“I just hope we get it over with soon before another generation is indoctrinated to Marxism and we still remember conservatism, capitalism and constitutionalism.”
I’ve done all I can to educate my kids. I will rationally discuss this with anyone that cares to listen. That is my contribution. I have, God willing, roughly a generation left here.
“Yep, pretty soon having heat and AC may be a luxury.”
Last winter I only heated the bedroom and the master bath. I used to cool the living room and bedroom. I’m moving my work stuff into the bedroom and cooling only that. With my older poorly insulated home heating and cooling could be $400 a month or more. It could be much less, but the lefties put a measure on the ballot and passed it which prevented the local power plant from investing in a new coal fired facility that would be built regardless. But if we’d invested in it our costs would have been substantially less.
The fact that this administration first tries to jam things through Congress shows that they know it’s Congress’s role. They can’t validly claim it’s legitimate executive action on any grounds.
And the Smart Meters they forced on us will soon be used to dole out our allottment of electricity. We’ll have to install stationary bikes to generate our own electricity.
Its hard not to feel hopeless or helpless.
Yet that doesn’t stop them.
Ignore the ravings of this madman, and his insane minions.
Just ignore him.

Tyrant Obama does another illegal bypass of Congress, to the delight of Doormat Republicans Boehner and Cantor.
The EPA needs to be totally dismantled, yet no one even tries. The regulatory agencies, like the EPA, are being used to impose a dictatorship on the US and to destroy its wealth and independence of its people. This is a war and the Left will be walking on our bones because we let the country fall to its internal enemies.
They will do what they can get away with, like the schoolyard bully.
“They will do what they can get away with, like the schoolyard bully.”
Perhaps some state governor will stand tall and refuse to comply. Paging Governor Walker, Governor Perry, Governor Christie, Governor Scott, Governor Fallin, Governor Jindal, Governor McCrory, Governor Brewer. Will any of you answer the call?
I think he's trying to create a 'crisis' - one not to waste. We can out wait democrat jerks... they want a fight - one more reason NOT to give them one.
