Cap and Trade in Practice

Also please consider the following.

During testimony before The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on March 27, 2007, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) asked Al Gore to take the following pledge:

As a believer:

-that human-caused global warming is a moral, ethical, and spiritual issue affecting our survival;

-that home energy use is a key component of overall energy use;

-that reducing my fossil fuel-based home energy usage will lead to lower greenhouse gas emissions; and

-that leaders on moral issues should lead by example;

I pledge to consume no more energy for use in my residence than the average American household by March 21, 2008.”

Former Senator and Vice President of the United States, Al Gore refused to take this pledge.

As of January 02, 2010, another 1018 days have passed; however Mr. Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for his movie "An Inconvenient Truth", continues his refusal to sign this pledge.

Hot and cold extremes will become more common...that's why it's called climate change. But don't let the facts get in the way of your ideology, Simplicio.

Where are the hot extremes? Al Gore calls it Global Warming. To what facts are you referring? The factual errors in "An Inconvenient Truth"? The fact that Al Gore will not sign the pledge? The fact that Greenland is called that because it once was green? The fact that Carbon Dioxide represents about 4% of the Greenhouse gasses only about half of which is man-made? The fact that there has been no significant increase in World Temperatures in the last decade? I could go on, but first where are your facts?
