The idea is catching on because it is actually the only reasonable and effective plan that puts the markets to work fighting a serious problem.

Like all good ideas, it is labelled 'radical' and 'unworkable' when first proposed. But it gradually gains converts as they put their initial distrust aside and really look at it.

But there will always be those who want to pervert and misdirect for their own gain. Including those who want to put the moneys collected to offsetting the national debt.

All they really want to do is prevent a 'fair share' tax on the wealthy, which would have the same effect as the 'fiscal cliff' because it would STILL increase the economic burden on the 'working class' and lead to a crash from bankruptcies, foreclosures and reduce spending.

They cannot suck the life from the REAL economy and expect it to survive no matter what loophole they think they have found..

If you can deal with reality for a short period, the 'cap and trade' idea of the EPA are nothing to do with a global carbon tax.

You really need to take your meds,Dirtling. Nursey will help. Then you will need an adequate eduction to read English as it is written. Good luck.

The reality is that you live in a world of OZ. You really really don't have a clue how thing's work. I HAVE A GREATER EDUCATION IN THE TIP OF MY FINGER THAN YOU COULD RECEIVE, ACHIEVE THROUGHOUT YOUR ENTIRE BODY IN A LIFE TIME. Oh upper case used only because you have a blind eye towards reality.

It wasn't the sun after all, the Koch Bros.

The BEST study is published finally to conclude that "solar forcing does not appear to contribute to the observed global warming of the past 250 years; the entire change can be modeled by a sum of volcanism and a single anthropogenic [human-made] proxy."
