Honestly, I'm terrified by the suggestion of capping prosperity for corporations with cap-and-trade. Now I'm seeing other proposals to tackle "the Global Warming problem" are so much more personal and invasive.
Last year, scientists said the best thing we could do is only have one child. Now, German Scientists are recommending personal carbon quotas and that it should be 1/4 of American's current consumption.
Can you imagine the massive government regulation needed to monitor such plans? SMART detectors turning off your power when you've reached your "quota" for the day? Showers with set time lengths?
Phelim said it best. "I expected conservatives to care about what was going on in the bedroom, what I was unprepared for was liberals caring about every other room in the house."
