If you think cap and trade is
needed or innocuous, think again!

The House of Representatives rammed through the mind
bending 1500 page American Clean Energy Security Act of 2009 (H.R. 2454) on June 26th, 2009. The last 300
pages had just been written the night before. No one had seen it. There wasn't even a copy on the floor of the House.

carbon currency might also be planned. Watch our short
