And all jobs would go to china and india where no regulations exist. Doing this would solve little, other than to move where the pollution is being generated.Originally posted by: sandorski
Well, that would likely be true if taxes were the only method used to acheive the goal.Originally posted by: Jmman
The treaty calls for a reduction of emissions to 7% below 1990 levels, a pretty huge cutback. The US Dept of Energy study found that gasoline would go up by as much as 53% and electricity by as much as 83% because of the taxes necessary to meet that target. I personally don't want to pay $2.50 or $3 a gallon for gas so the Chinese can pollute as much as they want...........:disgust:
So china's massive pollution and brown cloud is not a envirmental issue, it is trade issue?
