Hope and Change: Obama administration kills Kyoto treaty.
Fair’s fair: if the previous administration had to take the heat for refusing to flush the American economy down the toilet for the sake of that nonsensical treaty, then so can this one. This one goes out to every voter whose primary motivation for voting Democratic was climate change: The United States never ratified the agreement because it doesn’t require any action from the developing | Read More »
Michael Williams’ Cap-and-Trade series, continued.

He’s up to Part III (see also Part I & Part II, of course), and here’s what he’s hoping to accomplish with it: Democrats in Congress, joined with the Obama administration, are proceeding along parallel tracks to impose CO2 regulations so sweeping | Read More »
