  1. The idea is to use a revenue neutral carbon fee and dividend. That's what the #1 Climate Scientist on the planet, Jim Hansen recommends, and he is BTW a big proponent of Nuclear Energy. This will reward the poor and middle class while punishing the wealthy who consume far more energy. It is amazing to me the NATGEO, in their last episode actually promoting the Cap & Trade nutty scam, that is proven not only to be ineffective but shifts the cost of high carbon energy onto the poor & middle class while gives big profits to the wealthy.

  2. Well you can thank Greenpeace and other pseudo-environmental groups who were paid by Big Fossil to stop the rapid nuclear power expansion of the 70's which replaced virtually all oil generation in the US and by now would have replaced all coal generation if it had been allowed to continue. Millions have died worldwide due to their actions.

  3. I have mixed emotions. It is obvious the coal plant is a health concern, however, to everyone that moved to the city after the plant was built, then they have no reason to complain. Only those that were there before the plant was built I feel have a right to complain as no one forced anyone to move there and no one is preventing them from leaving.

  4. It's hard to feel sorry, when the SOLUTION to our energy crisis is NUCLEAR ENERGY. Not 50s 60s or 70s nuclear power, modern nuclear technology will put this issue to rest until nuclear fusion is available

  5. Could have been done with coal 50 years ago. Nuclear was and still is the answer. And, before I get any nonsense, I have 2.5 acres, I'll gladly lease my land for storage of waste.
