So explain how much this is going to cost me, because I'm sure it's going to be substantial.

So, as the global warming crisis continues to be debunked, Team Obama forges ahead to attack our energy industry. With 37% of our energy coming from coal, hang on to your check books.

Obama attempts to justify Obamacare pointing to the incremental costs US firms incur, yet this move will actually burden many of our industries. Plus, if coal does contribute to global warming, we will build one for every 20+ China adds. If there is global warming, it is a global problem. We will be breathing China's bad air. It is amazing Obama's inconsistencies are so overlooked by the left.

Tax carbon; end carbon subsidies; let the market sort out the alternatives. Cap & trade worked wonders for acid rain, thanks to Bush Senior and his conservative head of the EPA. It can do the same for CO2 emissions.

"Only a repub would consider moving away from a dead source of energy that pollutes our planet as "radical."----How is it a "dead" source of energy if it is still so widely used?
