“Carbon cap and trade would decimate the economy durign a period of great uncertainty. The last 2 winters have been some of the coldest on record. The earth has natural heating a cooling cycles (look it up , its true). 1 volcano erruption spews more CO2 into the air than all of the autos in the US combined. capping carbon is just another form of taxation on the working class.”

“It may have natrual cycles, but that does not mean we are not causing this one. If you look at the rates of change, we are going much faster then the natrual cycles.
As for the volcano, over what period of time are you looking? And even so, car's are not the only thing that burn fuel.”
“Why in the world should we bailout people for not paying their mortgage? Everyone who signed up for a mortgage executed a contract stipulating they would pay a mortgage now after years of over-leveraging people expect the gov't (tax payer) to rush in and bail them out. Screw that!
I pay my mortgage, bought a house I could afford (not the most expensive house I could purchase with 100% debt and interest only for 5 year) and I feel its completely unfair to subsidize those who acted irresponsibly through higher taxes.”

“Right! If anything, people should be rewarded for paying their mortgages.”
