DN Article - Help Barack 2 - Price of Carbon

My snarkiest column yet and they aksed me cut out the most acerbic bits. I'm kinda bummed. I never get to be snarky or acerbic, but some sections of our society (cough: Republicans!) are really starting to annoy me. I guess that's just because someone decided to set the television in the student government office on Fox News.

Emissions trading best for pollution control

Tree Hugging Commie ;-) Your last sentence was hilarious. I hope you don't get too many nasty letters from this article. It is a shame that the media isn't talking about these options more and bring them to our attention. I heard about the trading on NPR and think it is a good idea from what little I know and on how it is working in Europe. Any time you say taxes Republicans will scream unless it is more taxes for the lower class.
Have a great weekend and I hope you get some good feedback.

Nah, just one comment so far, very cordial. Just a standard "it'll never work" response, although in this case he's basing his argument on some decent evidence out of Australia which implemented a trading system which doesn't seem to have done any good.

I'll have to look into that and find out why its not working.
