What Happened To Obama’s Cap And Trade Love?


Remember how firmly committed President Obama was to passing a cap-and-trade anti-global warming energy reform bill this year? You don’t? Well, don’t go looking around on the White House web site for evidence because it’s been scrubbed, according to an energy and environment trade publication.

“The White House has recently revised its energy and environment website, stripping references to a cap-and-trade program for greenhouse gases and a pledge to funnel $150 billion into clean energy research. Gone from the site is a section titled ‘Closing the Carbon Loophole and Cracking Down on Polluters,'” reports Energy & Environment.

“The website had pledged to ‘finally close the carbon pollution loophole’ by stemming emissions through a market-based cap, according to a version obtained by Jesse Jenkins of the Breakthrough Institute, but the updated version omits any mention of cap and trade,” Energy & Environment said.

Can we add this to the long list of broken Obama promises?

Of course, Obama, like most Climate Creationists, fails to practice what he preaches.
