Carbon Tax Credits is an international tax ultimately leveled against consumers, and, contrary to claims made by proponents, doesn't benefit sub-industrialized countries and cultures, but lines the pockets of billionaires. If it didn't enrich them, it never would have passed. Below are links showing that global warming is something happening on planets in our solar system where humans don't exist. Any kind of tax proposal coming out of this "discussion" should be dropped. Period. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8468358.stm http://epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=PressRoom.Blogs&ContentRecord_id=469DD8F9-802A-23AD-4459-CC5C23C24651 http://www.dakotavoice.com/2009/06/nasa-study-shows-sun-responsible-for-planet-warming/

Ignarance is bliss, but dangerous. Nothing noted by any reputable scientist shows any doubt about human impact on climate. We are doing this to our selves and deniers are dangerouse fools
