The cap N trade bill is an interesting piece of work from our fine affiliates in congress. They essentially take control of the airways and sell it off piece by piece. This is my own understanding from research I personally performed, which only means that it could still wrong. But I can start to see how the entire bill shapes up into a globalized plan to sell airspace, planet Earth’s the new frontier. I see an enhanced space race similar to the one in the 1960’s “the worldwide race to get to the moon!” America eventually won the war but the battles were hard fought. We were the first to the moon as well as the last. Now I have a different angle on what I personally see as the same kind of issue, just revisited decades later.
I read somewhere in this immensely long and drawn out document called the Cap N Trade bill that the owners of excess “Carbon Units” have the right to sell this off to other individuals or corporations. I personally see a lot of court proceedings coming about as this new technology like any other in the history of mankind needs time to realign it self maybe several times over in order to find it’s proper fit in our society. This period in history is usually a rough spot to deal with the experience called learning leaves so many casualties along the way. In order to learn we must sacrifice on this planet sacrifice most often equates to pain. The Automobile caused a lot of pain for the makers of horseshoes. The Compact Disc caused a lot of pain for the creators of the Cassette Tape. My only question is how can this bill be fairly enforced with so many glaring loopholes right at the start?
So here’s the speal they give out as standard definition; the purpose to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. By creating and selling a system of “pollution permits” that energy companies must purchase before releasing Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere. I smell a monopoly here. I can see in the very distant future all of the “Pollution Permits” being bought up by major Corps. The price then skyrockets into a bidding war or worse countless misunderstandings which always leads to violence and protest. Misunderstandings, why you ask? Because the bill sponsored by Henry Waxman of California is 1478 pages long! No one is going to get a clear understanding of it! Frustration is the precursor to almost all ignorant acts.
The creators memorize the points that are to their advantage and quietly omit the other half due to time constraints whatever exclusive reasoning works for them at that time. This tactic though brilliant sounding in tactical board meeting rooms does not tend to work out realistically when confronted with simple yet fact based type situations. Like does global warming even really exist? Let’s just say that it didn’t, just for a brief second let’s look at from a Hustler’s angle. As a Solar company or union of Solar companies could convince our government that it did exist. They would stand to profits in the trillions of dollars! As you read the Waxman-Markley bill you began to see the monopoly of our very air being formed right before our eye’s. If you do have the mental toughness to read the 1478 document you will come across a small to moderately sized section on residential homes. Here is where you learn for the first time that in the very near future a license may be needed in order to sell your home. This said license would act as proof that the home in question has been retrofitted to comply with the energy and water efficiency standards mandated by this bill. It gets worse ( in terms of unneeded unnecessary cost to you the homeowner) so as a homeowner yes, I suggest you look further into it.
