What’s not to like about cap and trade?

| October 5, 2011 | Reply

Barack Obama once promoted “Cap and Trade” as an alleged method for reducing carbon emissions, but has since backed off of that idea. Thank goodness, because cap and trade is a terrible approach for several major reasons that are well illustrated by this video, “The Story of Cap & Trade” by Annie Leonard.

Now, if we can only get Barack Obama to quit using the term “clean coal” as if such a thing is economically feasible.
