Cap & Trade vs Data

Quoting The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley
“The [Cap & Trade] Bill, even if fully implemented, would make no measurable difference [just like Kyoto]…

Spain has had to close its largest windfarm because it was killing rare griffon vultures; Denmark no longer subsidizes wind power because its electricity grid became unstable once the contribution from the wind exceeded 5%. The carbon emissions saved are negligible because fossil-fueled power stations must be kept in steam in case the wind drops.

As for solar panels, more carbon is emitted in their construction than is saved during their short lifespan. Though they are fashionable, like wind-power they are not a paying proposition unless they are massively subsidized at taxpayers’ expense, and their contribution to reducing carbon emissions – even if it were necessary to reduce carbon emissions, which we now know it is not – is negligible…

each ‘green job’ would cost the taxpayer $800,000, destroying some 40 real jobs for each bogus or ‘green’ job artificially and temporarily created. Well has it been said that ‘green jobs’ is the new unemployment.”

I often wonder how those who are touting the jobs that will be created by cap and trade can just ignore all the jobs that will be lost. Cap and trade will devastate the US economy, and if Europe is a guide, will do nothing to improve the state of the environment. This legislation makes no sense. Write your legislators at
