Petition to stop cap and trade

Posted on

Subject: Stop the cap-and-trade scam.

Sign the petition opposing cap and trade policies.

Protect American jobs, energy, and prosperity from global warming hype.

Efforts to control man-made “greenhouse gases” through mandatory policies like cap and trade are nothing more than “All Pain, No Gain” – all economic pain for no environmental gain.

Energy Tax:  Proposals like cap and trade are simply a massive tax on energy use – on everything we heat, cool, drive, make, grow, eat, and do – and will therefore cause the price of everything to skyrocket.

Hurts Americans: These proposals will harm all Americans by exorbitantly raising gasoline prices and utility bills, sending jobs overseas, perpetuating the myth that “green jobs” will grow our economy, and acting as a huge “regressive tax” that will especially hurt the poor and our nation’s seniors on fixed incomes.

Failing Science:  An outpouring of peer-reviewed studies, data, and skeptical scientists from around the world debunks the alleged “consensus” about man-made global warming.  The Earth is well within natural climate variability, climate fear is being driven by unproven computer models, and it is preposterous for the EPA, White House, or Congress to call carbon dioxide a “pollutant.”

Purely Symbolic: Congressional proposals like cap and trade, and international treaties like the Kyoto Protocol, are purely symbolic efforts at reducing emissions and stabilizing the climate.  Even President Obama’s own EPA admits cap-and-trade policies will have no detectable impact on global CO2 levels or temperatures.  U.N. treaties will also be meaningless since developing nations like China and India have no intention of setting definite CO2 limits.

I just signed a petition to stop the cap-and-trade scheme. I hope you will, too. Please have a look and take action by clicking the link below.

    I signed it.

    What a bunch of baloney this carbon credit thing is. This is just another new way to keep the everyday Joe taxed to death. Imaginary money that mysteriously only benefits the rich, and does nothing for anyone else…not even the environment!

    Don’t democrats understand that this entire global warming scheme is the very root of all evil they accuse republicans of?

    Fool the commoners, get rich, laugh about it. Yay. Here goes the next 100 years…
