I am posting Benchmarking US Air Emissions (2006), a joint report by Ceres, NRDC, and PSEG, because it apparently is no longer available on the Internet, and it contains research relevant to the climate policy debate. For example, many of the nation’s biggest CO2 emitters (e.g. American Electric Power) are also leading advocates of cap-and-trade. Does this make Waxman-Markey a “polluter-crafted” bill, and recipients of EPA campaign contributions “polluter-funded” politicians? Yes, if you apply green “logic” without fear or favor.My comment to this story:
In simplest term… Follow the money.
It is like when I learned that a nuclear power industry was pushing for wind power, because this would push prices of electricity up and thus provide more profits for their installed based of nuclear power stations. This is a profit only logic and as nothing to do with a logic of pushing price down for energy for the benefit of all.
