I applaud the Biden administration for their commitment to reduce carbon emissions from the coal and gas fired power plants. However, the problem with EPA regulations is that as soon as Republicans gain power in Congress, they would undoubtedly reverse this policy as they did just six years ago.

The world is warming and there are benefits to having a greener, wetter planet which is preferred by most people to a cooler planet. The UN’s highest temperature scenario used by the media is unrealistic. Global warming policiers are causing a lot of harm to people in poor countries and slowing down world growth to humanities detriment. We'll adopt green energy as technology advances and that trend is well underway. Green energy will prevail because it will be less expensive than fossil fuels.

Here we go again with the carbon credit wealth redistribution plan… Please don’t forget you need those nasty carbon-based products to make your renewable products. Renewable products where folks conveniently forget the environmental costs of mining raw materials as well as hazardous waste disposal after batteries and solar panels have ended their useful life. Meanwhile, China, India, and other developing, and even developed countries continue to increase their consumption of carbon-based products. Good luck on getting them on board with a wealth redistribution carbon tax – unless they’re the beneficiaries of this largesse.

Ms. Dooley - do you ever wonder why this carbon tax is not gaining any traction in DC? It makes no economic sense and even your own explanation indicates that it does nothing to reduce our carbon footprint. It is just another way to redistribute wealth and add to out ever-growing bureaucracy. Nice try.
