I confess that the green agenda of saving the planet sounds so wonderful that I almost signed the petition*
"I support clean energy legislation that will create millions of jobs and help solve the climate crisis by closing the carbon pollution loophole."
Funny how simple this petition is, and how ignorant folks are if they believe it. The stimulus package was to create millions of new jobs, but so far, we have seen the closure of many auto dealers, and factories which have caused a ripple effect of jobs lost all over the nation...hmm...whenever the government says that jobs will be created you better count on double to triple the number of jobs lost.
What are doing to prep for extreme legislation against energy? Are you preparing to live with less? Can you live without utilities in the winter? How about the summer(especially in NM)?
While we have been directed to Health Care and the infomercial put on by ABC, the magician Mr. Government has been quietly working this Cap and Trade legislation through. It is a terrible piece of work, and in Europe the corruption is unbelievable. Did you know that you can sell your extra unused carbon? Do you see room for major con artists, selling their unused carbon credits??
I am sick and tired of the corruption and MONEY that rules the political class. So once again what are you doing to prepare for this?
Some things you need to ponder-what can you do to reduce your energy usage now? I am not promoting the Green plan as it is usually more pricey and toxic than common sense. Use the natural breezes that your region has- to allow air to flow through your home. Consider awnings or porches to reduce the heat in your home...we are currently building rustic porches to reduces the heat coming in, and I have been impressed with how effective this is.
*By the way I was kidding about the petition...I do not believe the green crowd- either live what you profess or BE QUIET. Can you imagine how gullible people are that those with money can buy offsets and that is OK? Really- if the earth is dying because of big bad ole man then they should live what they preach, but they don't. Why? Because they are making a ton of money selling the Sky is Falling in a totally neat package.
