Cap & Trade really Cap & Scam

One of the most insidious schemes to come out of the District of Criminals, has to be the Cap & Trade global tax scheme.  C&T is nothing more than a system of taxes in a massive pay to play scam.  While many believe Cap & Trade will reduce pollution, save energy and make the whole planet “go green”, the truth is the only thing that will be greened up is the bank accounts of various elected officials who have prostituted themselves and their offices along with the money managers at the IMF and world bank.

Cap & Trade does not call for emissions reductions.  Various businesses just have to pay for the privilege ofEPA a threat polluting the air, land or water with whatever noxious and toxic material their particular business produces.  That is of course, unless you are in the oil and gas production businesses in which case the EPA has generously spared you from having to comply with even minimal clean water, clean air or any other environmental concern.  In fact, the EPA was so generous to these guys, YOU cannot sue THEM for polluting your water, for devastating the land or for any other damage or harm they cause while drilling their way merrily through landscape.  These are really, really special people and the EPA has not only bent over backwards to accommodate them, they did hand stands and backflips and a fair amount hiney hugging in the process.  The oil cartels reciprocated by keeping the EPA awash in funding provided by their good buddies inside the beltway.

But for the rest of you, you need not worry too much.  Just pay your Cap & Scam taxes and you can keep rolling without changing a thing!  Here’s how it works:

Company A’s business dumps 2 tons of pollution (name your poison) into the air each day.  A total of yearly emissions is calculated and “carbon credits” equaling that amount are issued to you for the year.   Let’s say these credits amount to 100 carbon credits.  You pay your carbon tax, (only we don’t call it a tax we call it a Credit) and you can pollute at the same rate as you always did.  This is far cheaper in the long run than updating your system and maybe putting in scrubbers or something irritating like that in your stacks.  More
