I would like you to know that I am not against developing new technology that will help us find new sources of energy. On the contrary, we need to develop nuclear, natural gas, wind and solar in America. But the bottom line is coal, nuclear and fossil fuels will still be the cheapest and widest available energy resources we will be able to utilize in our generation. Ethanol is a farce, and will deplete our food resources and make them more expensive for us to purchase. It is just that the idea of "trading" carbon credits is a very bad idea. Anyone with basic earth sciences knows that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. On the contrary, this is what we exhale, and what plants and trees "breathe in" to produce oxygen, for US to live! All of this green technology and smart power and smart growth sounds good on the surface, but the people and motivations behind it are not "friendlies."
