Cap And Trade Quotes

Loading...
Text Versions
To some, a cap-and-trade system might sound like a neat approach where the market sorts everything out. But in fact, in some ways it is worse than a tax. With a tax, the costs are obvious. With a cap-and-trade system, the costs are hidden and shifted around. For that reason, many politicians tend to like it. But that is dangerous.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) You don’t get real reform by pandering to every special interest. With cap and trade we wound up with a bill that didn’t accomplish much, was enormously complicated and expensive.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) If you have a carbon cap and trade system, there’d be an agreed-to limit the amount of carbon we emit. That changes the economic picture for fossil technologies and for the renewable technologies. It makes the renewable technologies more attractive and the fossils less attractive.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Ever since the collapse of cap and trade legislation and the realization that President Obama is unlikely to ever utter the words ‘climate change’ in public again, much less use the bully pulpit to prepare the nation for the catastrophic risks of inaction, the movement has been in a funk.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Consider the perverse effect cap and trade has on altruistic actions. Say you decide to buy a small, high-efficiency car. That reduces your emissions, but not your country’s. Instead it allows somebody else to buy a bigger S.U.V. - because the total emissions are set by the cap.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Nobody in this country realizes that cap-and-trade is a tax - and it’s a great big one  (Cap And Trade Quotes) You should be attacking the carbon emissions, period, and whether it’s cap-and-trade or carbon tax or whatever, that’s the realm in which we should be playing.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) The cap-and-trade plan is more market driven than anything else. If you want to discourage carbon use, you have to make it more expensive, but what is crucial is that this be a worldwide program that includes China and India.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) When I voted against the cap-and-trade bill, the phone rang and it was the chief of staff of the president of the United States of America, Rahm Emanuel, and he started swearing at me in terms and words that I hadn’t heard since that crossing the line ceremony on the USS New Jersey in 1983.  (Cap And Trade Quotes) The US needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights. The revenues from these auctions can be used to launch a new, environmentally friendly energy policy. That would be yet another federal program that could help us to overcome the stagnation  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Washington is a place where people have always been suspect of style and overt sexuality. Too much preening signals that you’re not up late studying cap-and-trade agreements  (Cap And Trade Quotes) I’m finding myself really angry over spending and the deficit. I’m finding myself really angry over what’s happening in the Middle East, the decision to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely. I’m angry about cap and trade. And I’ve been on record for a long time on the failed war on drugs  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Most Americans are more concerned about the economy and job creation. And they can’t understand why the Obama administration or the Democrat majority in Congress wants to pass a bill like the cap-and-trade tax that will cost us jobs, that will hurt our economy, that will drive up costs for families, as well as for small businesses  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Opponents of cap and trade should be careful what they wish for  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Cap and trade is a sledge hammer to freedom  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket  (Cap And Trade Quotes) You don’t get real reform by pandering to every special interest. With cap and trade we wound up with a bill that didn’t accomplish much, was enormously complicated and expensive  (Cap And Trade Quotes) A cap and trade bill will likely increase the costs of electricity... These costs will be passed on to the consumers. But the issue is, how does it actually... how do we interact in terms with the rest of the world? If other countries don’t impose a cost on carbon, then we would be at a disadvantage... We should look at considering duties that would offset that cost  (Cap And Trade Quotes) I think we can lower our emissions. I think the world will be better off if we did that, and we can do it without cap and trade  (Cap And Trade Quotes) Because cap and trade is enforced through the selling and trading of permits, it actually perpetuates the pollution it is supposed to eliminate  (Cap And Trade Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
