Although a vote on "climate change" legislation is being pushed into 2010, a leading think tank is warning people to stay on their toes.
Prospects are looking dim for cap-and-trade legislation in 2009. In conjunction, America's failure to pass the legislation is having a negative effect on the upcoming Copenhagen climate treaty talks. But Ben Lieberman of The Heritage Foundation warns concerned citizens that the fight is not over.
"Those of us who are concerned about the global-warming legislation as it currently stands need to constantly be vigilant," he urges. "But it does look like things are being pushed into 2010.

Petition the Law Makers to Stop this Scam
Gore is cashing in, it looks like fun.
How can WALL STREET join the run?
Cap and Trade thats the answer
But who will pay?

Think of the Subsidies Think of Waste
As Cost of Energy Elevates
Energy, life blood of man, will stop in this here land
Business will head to other places along with their tax base
Law Makers Make a Stand
Energy Independence, this is plain
But some Law Makers want to enslave us
Enslave us to the Foreign Carbon Game
So, make your case CO2, that Evil Gas, Rules the Climate if you can
Or declare CO2 a non pollutant
Take it out of EPAs Hand

If we could only find a rapper to chant this mantra!
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
The socialists CAN’T stop the global-warming legislation, because green is the new red and they have no fallback position.
"Global cooling" failed to catch on in the '70s, but "acid rain" (oooooh, acid rain!) worked well as a leftist boogeyman in the '80s and '90s...

"Toxic" something or "poison" something...?
Thanks for the ping
