but we do subsidize renewables to a tune of one dollar per gallon of biodiesel.....not that i'm complaining, but you gotta deal with the hand that feeds you. <snicker><quoted text>
We don't have a carbon tax. We don't have cap and trade. We didn't sign the Kyoto protocol. Yet we have reduced our CO2 emissions to 1994 levels while the UK has increased theirs by 10%. What has been the biggest boost in reducing our emissions? The switch to natural gas...private enterprise supplying clean energy to the public, all without the passage of a carbon tax or cap and trade.
however....we do have RIN's....which are sort of a carbon tax with a twist.(not that i'm complaining about that either...it can be pretty lucrative if you play your cards right)
what these people don't understand is that free markets and capitalism WILL always meet the real demands, and face the causes, better than a federal mandate ever could.
so many monday morning quarterbacks here.....but then again....they aren't really in the game. just angry fans on the wrong side of america.
