Sounds to me like lefty socialist DIMocRATs are just singing this tune to help bring down our country. Nothing more, nothing less! If Russia, China and India are exempt then what is the point? Sheesh, will the American peole ever wake up to these saboteurs?
Basically, this is just a ruse to raise more taxes.
"Evolution of the species is a fact! All opponents, sit down and shut up!"
Socialism has arrived in Amerika!
First, the assertion is made that we are causing global warming and/or climate change; then comes the assertion that we must control the climate through legislation/regulation and taxation.
The time for debunking is now. It might be much more difficult later. There comes a "political tipping point" after which bloodshed may be required to reverse the situation.
If humans are responsible for global warming are we also responsible for the rash of cold destruction sweeping across the fruited plain in many states such as Malibu Beach, CA? I cannot see how we can be held responsible for warming and not frigid weather too.
I imagine when Ms. Pelosi introduces her legislation, she'll slip in an exemption for the Starkist tuna plant in American Samoa.
I understand your frustration. In cases where disaster is a result of cold temperatures, the term "climate change" is used instead of "global warming", "change" implying, of course, a primary human causation (which is in dispute given that there are many other factors to consider).
Exactly why is the worlds biggest polluter allowed to sign Kyoto but is completely free of all aspects of the Kyoto protocol and its wealth transfer scheme, is it because they are Communists?

China's Boom Adds to Global Warming Problem
Damn glad I returned to public accounting this week.
Held off for years, opting for greater "stability" in corporate jobs.
What a dumbass I was. With the Democrats in charge, and the Republican party imploding, business will be even better (sadly) for tax advisors in the months to come.
I missed the Sarbanes-Oxley wave, but I won't miss this one.
Truthfully, it was more of finding the right situation: small (and very successful) office staffed by recovering "workaholics" who are also recovering from being the parents of teenagers.
One volcano eruption can ruin your whole decade...
Remember the millions (billions?) of gallons released from a nearby dam to enable that photo-op?
WE may hear the term global warming change again this week. Mr. Gore is supposed to give a talk in Idaho Monday on global warming. With the big storms moving thru the area with any luck they'll have to cancel. I don't think he can fly very well with his jets full of ice. I'm hoping because I want to hear the expanation.
IMO, any global warming caused now by humans might lessen the impact of cooling caused by ash output from the next major eruption.
