After doing a lot of research on Cap and Trade, I have actually changed my mind about it, from supporting it to Not supporting it. After finding out the other day that the “Cap and Trade” scheme was originally designed by those great guys at Enron and Goldman Sachs, an imediate red flag went up and I thought to myself, “what is this cap and trade really all about”. The answer is MONEY…. not helping the environment as I once thought.
In theory Cap and Trade is a great idea and would definitely work to curb carbon emissions, but the devil is in the detail, and the details of the proposed cap and trade is what makes it a very bad idea. Instead of trying to explain everything in writing, I think this little cartoon will do a better job than i ever could, so check it out and leave a comment and let us know what you think.
