Humanity will keep spewing carbon into the atmosphere, but good policy can help sink it back into the earth.

“Like medieval priests, today’s carbon brokers will sell you an indulgence that forgives your carbon sins. It will run you about $500 for 5 tons of forgiveness—about how much the typical American needs every year. Or about $2,000 a year for a typical four-person household. Your broker will spend the money on such things as reducing methane emissions from hog farms in Brazil.

But if you really want to make a difference, you must send a check large enough to forgive the carbon emitted by four poor Brazilian households, too—because they’re not going to do it themselves. To cover all five households, then, send $4,000. And you probably forgot to send in a check last year, and you might forget again in the future, so you’d best make it an even $40,000, to take care of a decade right now. If you decline to write your own check while insisting that to save the world we must ditch the carbon, you are just burdening your already sooty soul with another ton of self-righteous hypocrisy. And you can’t possibly afford what it will cost to forgive that.”

President Obama is aggressively pushing his cap and trade policy, this is going to be his next big agenda item. Under the president’s plan taxes will go up as will the cost of energy. And these taxes will be raised on everybody.

According to a new study released by the Tax Foundation, Obama’s plan will unfairly tax the working families and lower class in America. But the tax burden won’t just fall on the working families, it will also fall on the young, the old, and the single parents.

The average tax burden will be over $1,200 a year, during a time of recession Obama is planning on taking away more of our money through this scam. Look at the groups that will be most hurt by his policies, the old and single parents, these are the people who need the money the most and Obama is going to take it away from them. $1,2oo is allot of money to a woman who has to buy diapers and baby formula and $1,200 is allot of money to an older couple who has to heat their home in the winter.
