A new bill aimed at combating global warming currently being considered by the Senate would, if passed, inflict a new great depression on America by reducing GDP by 6.9 percent - a figure comparable with the economic meltdown of 1929 and 1930.

Sorry to burst the bubble, but we're already smack dab, in the middle of the New and Improved Great Depression. We've been here for some time now too, just no one wanted to accept it. Ah, Denial - it must be a nice place to live. Now, what I'm not saying is that this Bill won't impact the economy... because it will/would/could/, but you can't put the chick back in the egg after it's hatched.

Global warming is a joke. A smoke and mirrors game that the Gore-idions want people to latch on to so that they don't see the REALLY BIG BAD UGLY Monster behind the curtain. It worked for a while, but I think people are finally understanding it more and more... at least I hope so.

Just remember, just like we have seasons, the earth does too and it will heat and cool as it needs to in order to maintain balance. We no more caused this supposed "crisis" than we caused the Grand Canyon to form. It's a natural process and the sooner people start to realize this fact, the better for all of us.

Can we make things better? Sure. But no tax hike, or Carbin tax, or some misc Bill will correct it. This will surely only lead to more woes for us all. Just some food for thought.

These estimates seem incredibly pessimistic. If companies spent money to improve the environmental impact of their businesses this would create more American jobs, even if the exports were the same or reduced. The GDP has been rising for years even as the average wage fell and American jobs were outsourced to other countries. GDP is not all ways the best indicator of a healthy economy. We need to switch from a mind set of excessive production in order to support excessive profits and consumption to one of economically and environmentally sustainable to support people and communities..

Jennifer, what you forget is that we are being penalized for producing a beneficial trace gas which is not pollution.
I can't fault you for your confusion since everything one sees on TV or read in the popular press equates pollution and CO2.

The only ones who benifit from this hoax are the nuclear industry and those Wall Streeters who will be trading carbon credits.

Given that the estimates come from the same EPA which falsely declared CO2 a pollutant, it is more likely the figures ar UNDER estimated.
