    ...idea, but it will only go a small way toward solving our energy problems and getting a handle on climate change.

    If it is decided that a carbon tax makes good sense to reduce the impacts of climate change, there are ways to ameliorate those costs to the poor and working class (which includes the middle class).

    But, please, making complaints about the origins of policy options when your sig line points us to a project dominated by investment bankers that bashes teachers and backs CAFTA, NAFTA and other "free trade" approaches all of which have helped obliterate large hunks of the nation's good jobs on the backs of the working class is a tad disingenuous, don't you think?

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
