U.S. "cap and trade" rebranded "pollution reduction

They're going to try and sneak it past us under another name. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6284M120100309

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.

I really don't understand how this results in less pollution. I mean, for them to even be able to present it, it has to at least have the potential to reduce pollution, even if it never actually does.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the reduction of pollution, and I am not the typical naive conservative who thinks the earth is some immortal being that can never be harmed or killed. But bullshit rules and politics isn't going to clean things up either.

Just an afterthought to my fellow conservatives. Not saying that you think like this, but I know that many people do. My grandparents do, but they are from an older generation.

If you pour out some motor oil on the ground, do you deserve what you get when it finally seeps into your well water? Or when you want to plant a garden there later, but can't? I think it all goes back to the old "Don't shit where you eat" or "Don't piss in your own pool". Not only that, but so many conservatives think that "god will protect us from our own irresponsibility". When, in your life, has god ever not made you live with your own mistakes? When has he ever not allowed you to learn a lesson? So why is the environment somehow magically exempt? Don't get me wrong im not some tree hugging hippie. But I'm also not a retard that thinks that this planet's biosphere is magically immortal. I like to be able to eat, and breathe. And you're a fool if you think man can't poison his environment. /rant

If you think of carbon dioxide as pollution then it makes perfect sense.

What about the one that actually does hurt the environment? What was it called? Carbon monoxide? The main evil one that cars and the damn factories and shit put out.

It's just a scam to find another way to tax us. I'm pretty sure most people can see the conspiracy behind this one. Of course the climate is going to change I don't doubt that, but the people acting like the worlds going to end if we don't give them our money to help stop this is just absolute horse shit.

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.
