  • New Hampshire smacks down cap and trade

    The New Hampshire House of Representatives today voted overwhelmingly — 246 to 104 — for New Hampshire to become the first state to repeal an up-and-running global warming cap-and-trade energy tax system. The state senate is expected to follow suit with a similarly veto-proof repeal. The move has major implications both in the region and nationally. Since 2008, New Hampshire has been one of the 10 members of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a power plant-only cap-and-trade system that holds quarterly auctions requiring electric utilities to buy carbon dioxide permits. The cost of those permits is buried in the...

    OAKLAND, CA — A tough political atmosphere in which Congress backed away from comprehensive clean energy and climate change legislation may have been the nail in the coffin for one of the voluntary carbon market's early pioneers.The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) will discontinue its voluntary greenhouse gas cap-and-trade program next month, according to Intercontinental Exchange Inc., its parent company. In its place, CCX will launch a new registry program for 2011 and 2012 carbon offsets.The development marks a stark contrast from two years ago when many considered climate change legislation in the U.S. to be inevitable."Fundamentally with any program that...

    During the debate on CNN between Republican Christine O’Donnell and Democrat Chris Coons who are the candidates for the U.S. Senate from Delaware, Chris Coons was asked a direct question. Ms. O’Donnell asked Mr. Coons if there would be any direct benefit from cap-and-trade for the company that he formerly worked for, a company whose current CEO is Chris Coons’ father in-law and which Chris Coons owns stock in. The company, W.L. Gore, also known as Gore-Tex is involved in making air filtration filters for natural gas turbines and also a material used in fuel cells. It is clear that...

    A headline on Thursday screamed: “Democrats pull plug on climate bill.” Don’t believe it. It’s a diversionary tactic. The Obama administration and Democratic congressional leadership, seeing their window for shoving the country to the hard left closing quickly, are intent on making one last major push for cap-and-trade. It starts with their “spill-response bill” or “energy bill,” but it’s really about cap-and-trade. The irony is that the political genius of cap-and-trade was supposed to be that it hides a tax hike from the American people.

    Fire in the Amazon, it turns out, was not a 'report' or a scientific paper but, as the WWF now acknowledges, a text published by IPAM? on its website in 1999 Last week, after six months of evasions, obfuscation, denials and retractions, a story which has preoccupied this column on and off since January came to a startling conclusion. It turns out that one of the most widely publicised statements in the 2007 report of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – a claim on which tens of billions of dollars could hang – was not based on peer-reviewed...

    The upcoming lame duck Congress -- that stretch between the Nov 2 election and when the newly elected Congress is seated is a dangerous time for our country. According to Elizabeth Letchworth of Gradegov.com who spent 26 years as the elected Secretary to the US Senate, we are looking at a potential disaster in November and December, when the lame ducks try to push through all the legislation they can. Think Amnesty, Cap & Trade. Elizabeth is currently writing a book about how Congress that explains how it got where it got and how they're so insulated and how you...

    NY Post ^ | June 21, 2010 | Patrick J. Michaels
    The cap-and-trade bill that the House passed last summer aims to force Americans to reduce those dreaded carbon emissions by 83 percent in less than four decades -- to the same per-capita level as 1867. Yet, even under the Al Gore-approved climate-science models, the bill would do nothing to stop global warming. The bill is 1,000-plus pages of rules, regulations, handouts, subsidies and whatever else House leaders deemed necessary. Not one of the 435 members read the whole monstrosity -- because the leadership dropped 300 new pages on their desks the night before they voted. Yet the central point is...

    President Obama's attempt to use the oil spill in the Gulf to push for cap & trade legislation doesn't seem to be working. According to one sponsor of the energy, bill the inclusion of the job killing, energy cost raising scheme is keeping the legislation far below the 60 vote threshold needed for it to pass in the Senate. But that won't stop either of them from following the 'never let a crisis go to waste' philosophy.

    ...Two patterns have emerged during Obama’s presidency: 1) Big business increasingly seeks profits through more government, and 2) Obama nonetheless paints opponents of his intervention as industry shills. BP is just the latest example of this tawdry sleight of hand. Yes they are because all day I couldn’t help but think about Goldmann Sachs and what we witnessed a couple of weeks ago on Capitol Hill, in more Kabuki Theater. There is a reason Glenn Beck did a show not too long ago called “Crime Inc.” on the topic of the Chicago Climate Exchange. The set-up from the powers that...

    Once a government pet, BP now a capitalist tool By: Timothy P. Carney Examiner Columnist June 9, 2010 In this May 30, 2010 file photo, BP PLC CEO Tony Hayward talks to reporters as he visits a Coast Guard command center in Venice, La. BP's inability to contain the worst oil spill in U.S. history has focused attention on CEO Tony Hayward's words and deeds over the past six weeks - and the scrutiny has not yielded a flattering image.

    CARSON CITY, NV – Personhood Nevada, through many legal battles, has been denied the right to circulate their prolife petition in the state. The ACLU joined forces with Planned Parenthood, tying the petition up in court and disallowing the many ready and willing Nevada volunteers their right to circulate the petition. “We have several issues at the heart of this matter,” explained Keith Mason, co-founder of Personhood USA. “First, we have judicial activists ruling against the petition, despite the fact that nearly similar language has been approved in other states. Second, we have the anti-personhood media reporting that we failed...

    In a speech that should have been given eight weeks ago the President spent more time covering his backside than showing that he is in command of the problem. Instead, taking the advice of Rahm Emanuel “to never let a crisis go to waste,” he decided to pimp his environmental legislation rather than show that he has his focus on the problem at hand. The president flatly turned down assistance from the Dutch government that could remove up to 20 million tons of oil and sludge PER DAY. Eight weeks later the administration has finally capitulated and accepted the help....

    Did you know that Goldman Sachs dumped 44% of its shares in BP Oil during the first quarter? According to a post at Raw Story:Goldman Sachs sold 4,680,822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010. Goldman’s sales were the largest of any firm during that time. Goldman would have pocketed slightly more than $266 million if their holdings were sold at the average price of BP’s stock during the quarter. If Goldman had sold these shares today, their investment would have lost 36 percent its value, or $96 million. The share sales represented 44 percent of Goldman’s holdings...

    Placing himself on the same side of the Cap and Trade debate as Osama bin , Puppet Master in Chief, George Soros, is supporting the ruinous legislation. Donny Ferguson at Western Tradition Partnership reports: Blogger FITSNews.com reveals left-wing environmentalist groups are bankrolling ads in South Carolina backing Graham’s radical green agenda, including one ad buy of $10,000 alone. The ads are purchased by GMMB, a Washington, D.C. media broker that advises President Barack Obama. Three of the groups bankrolling pro-Graham ads are: ‘Republicans for Environmental Protection,’ which is connected to a George Soros donor fund that provides “fiscal sponsorship for...

    President Barack Obama's approval rating has dropped to an all-time low of 44% according to the latest Quinnipiac Poll released this morning. But even though his numbers have dropped since signing his unpopular health care reform bill and the political future of his policy looks bleak, the president and his accomplices plan to push ahead with the far-left agenda the American people obviously do not want.

    More foreboding for the Democratic Party as Rasmussen's weekly look at the generic congressional ballot shows the GOP increasing their lead to 10%. 45% of voters would go for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 35% would opt for the Democratic. This is the largest lead since President Obama was inaugurated. The first poll after the inauguration had the Democratic party with a 7% lead meaning that there has been a 17% trade off in only 14 months. Additionally those picking neither party has dropped slightly from 23-20%. The generic ballot is a great way to show American Voters disapproval...
