I wonder how much of this opposition is rooted in the idea that people of the third world should not be made to suffer by being held back from the finer things in life (i.e., energy) because it is morally wrong to do this?
Or that the entire concept of man made global warming is really Mann made global warm.
Other than being a complete socialist idiot, why would anyone want action to prevent global warming when it was proven a complete fraud?
The MSM summary of this article would read: ‘Americans are in favor of regulating green house gases to stop global warming.’
The polls results are slightly different. Yes, most Americans would support such regulation even if it increases energy costs by a whopping $10-$25 per month. That hardly compares to Obama’s statement that he will send utility bills “skyrocketing” to stop global warming.
The best way to stop all this greenhouse gas emission legislation is to inform the American people just how much it will cost them for energy and in their life styles (no more 50 inch TVs, etc.).
...there is broad opposition to spending taxpayer money to encourage developing nations to curtail their energy use...
Why should developing nations curtail their energy use? The liberals don’t want them to develop? What the #e!! is going on? The liberals are trying to keep poor nations in poverty? Again, what the #e!! is going on?
Many liberals feel there is nothing wrong with keeping people mired in poverty. The worse off other people are, the more liberals can feel sorry about them and better about themselves.
