And just to add some , uh fuel, to the debate, look at who is in FAVOR of "smart carbon cap and trade" and WHY:

Smart Grid: Exelon CEO Wants Carbon Cap, Long-Term Renewable PTC, Loan Guarantees for Nuclear Power - Smart Grid News - Grid Modernization and the Smart Grid

Atomic Insights Blog: Unfriending Exelon - I take back all of the positive articles I have written about the company

The headlines from mainstream media? The media is bipolar, just a few months ago they were talking about how the world was going to end.

There are some indicators that are improving, they are hardly "recovering though". But this is to be expected, at some point the bleeding has to stop and the recession is already 1.5 years long. But what happens next? A moderation or even a bottoming out of key indicators does not exclude a Japanese like lost decade. It also does not exclude a double dip recession. What is going to drive growth going forward?

When our own energy dept with the present administration says that the answer is more efficent cars and $8.00 a gallon gasoline like in euorope last year who have to wander where the elites heads are. That and the cap and trade that is estimated to cost every family a average of $3000 a year more.Then there will be pressures to have people change from car made before the new standards to get rid of them besides those high prices.High emiision fees or what who knows.
