Thumbs down Now we get to the heart of the matter re: global warming

It's a wealth redistribution scheme. Always was. Now, instead of targeting wealthy countries (which became a non-starter) they have decided to directly target the rich.

Quote:
The study suggests setting a uniform international cap on how much carbon dioxide each person could emit in order to limit global emissions; since rich people emit more, they are the ones likely to reach or exceed this cap, whether they live in a rich country or a poor one.

fucking idiots. Where the fuck to they come up with this mumbo jumbo? Maybe they use the Manatees that make the jokes for Family Guy to come up with their theories. It's the only logical conclusion.

While this article hints at wealth redistribution, the current legislation in the US does exactly the opposite.

The rich will get richer under cap and trade because it creates a commodity exchange for carbon credits. Goldman Sachs would be a HUGE winner if cap and trade passes. GE would be another huge winner because they would end up building most of the low carbon power plants. The big losers are the middle class and the poor that will bare the brunt of these costs. The rich will pay for their carbon emissions too but they can pass those costs down to the consumer level. The poor are going to really be fucked over by this.

I like how the math just so happens to work out to:

Carbon Emissions
Americans 20 tons per year
Europeans 10 tons per year
Everyone else 5 tons per year

How stupid do you have to be to believe this bullshit?

Oh wait, we just elected a guy who believes it.

Hopefully it gets shot down, if it doesn't all hells going to break loose.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

What I find most comical, if one were to do the math, the rich might get "charged" more dollar wise, but when the tax-scheme moves down, actual percentage-wise, the "poor" pay more based on their salaries.

Ergo, their utility bill is a larger portion of their income than a "rich" person's utility bill compared to income.

That means that job growth will explode with 'everyone else.'
Can we get a list of the everyone else's so I know where to move?
