This cap & trade is just another smoke screen.
As soon as a viable clean energy source comes along, the price of oil will

When Washington gets serious, they will set a floor for the price of oil,
40, 50, 60, bucks a barrel. The price is up to debate. But whatever the
floor price is, if oil is less than that, a fee is added to bring it up to
the floor price, if over that price, the fee goes away. Do this for about
So, if a company, any company can produce energy for less than the 40 or 50
or 60 dollars a barrel, he has a business.
The only thing Washington is serious about is the next election. Nothing
else matters, the rest is just show.
But in defense of Washington, we DO have the best guvment money can buy!
