Stop the cap-and-trade scam
Subject: Stop the cap-and-trade scam.
Sign the petition opposing cap and trade policies.
Protect American jobs, energy, and prosperity from global warming hype.
Efforts to control man-made "greenhouse gases" through mandatory policies like cap and trade are nothing more than "All Pain, No Gain" – all economic pain for no environmental gain.
Energy Tax: Proposals like cap and trade are simply a massive tax on energy use – on everything we heat, cool, drive, make, grow, eat, and do – and will therefore cause the price of everything to skyrocket.
Hurts Americans: These proposals will harm all Americans by exorbitantly raising gasoline prices and utility bills, sending jobs overseas, perpetuating the myth that "green jobs" will grow our economy, and acting as a huge "regressive tax" that will especially hurt the poor and our nation's seniors on fixed incomes.
Failing Science: An outpouring of peer-reviewed studies, data, and skeptical scientists from around the world debunks the alleged "consensus" about man-made global warming. The Earth is well within natural climate variability, climate fear is being driven by unproven computer models, and it is preposterous for the EPA, White House, or Congress to call carbon dioxide a "pollutant."
Purely Symbolic: Congressional proposals like cap and trade, and international treaties like the Kyoto Protocol, are purely symbolic efforts at reducing emissions and stabilizing the climate. Even President Obama's own EPA admits cap-and-trade policies will have no detectable impact on global CO2 levels or temperatures. U.N. treaties will also be meaningless since developing nations like China and India have no intention of setting definite CO2 limits.
I just signed a petition to stop the cap-and-trade scheme. I hope you will, too. Please have a look and take action by clicking the link below.

Biography - Bob Webster
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
