Who's Who of Who Gets Regulated in Cap And Trade

Learning where Federal regulators will most likely be targeting their anti-pollution activities comes as no surprise. Manufacturing businesses and fossil-fuel power plants are the big losers in the “Cap and Trade” scenario. The other big losers will be the employees who will learn that their jobs have been terminated or transferred overseas. But this was the agenda.

Through the analysis presented in the Duke University study released today entitled Size Thresholds for Greenhouse Gas Regulation, there are some industries that will be affected as a whole, such as the petroleum industry. Smaller industries like the flat glass industry will also be an industry that will be affected as a whole. Other industries like the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, as they pointed out, will not be widely affected. But about half of the power plants are going to feel the regulatory-pain.

Some of these manufacturing industries will, no doubt, take that slow boat to China and relocate outside of the U.S. And who could blame them? It will not only cost-prohibitive to manufacture in America, it will be red-tape hell. So much for that American enterpreneurial spirit….

The Duke study is only correlating the thresholds of polluters and their percentage of both pollution and representation in a particular industry. The Environmental Defense Fund organization funded the Duke University study on CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions for manufacturing companies that would be regulated under the American Clean Energy and Security Act (“Cap and Trade Bill”).

The agenda behind the “Cap and Trade” bill is another forced legislative move towards a socialistic and anti-capitalistic America. Knowing how our National Organizer And Chief Obama uses his organizational skills and associations to further the socialist agenda, it comes as no surprise to learn that The Environmental Defense Fund recently endorsed a document, Earth Charter, which blames capitalism for many of the world’s environmental , social, and economic problems.

Recalling that Obama’s Science czar, Dr. Holdren, wants to de-develop our Nation, this “Cap and Trade” will work nicely into Holdren’s and Obama’s socialization plans for America.

And this convenient connection doesn’t end with Holdren and Obama. This latest study on who’s polluting America the worst was made possible by The Environmental Defense Fund which itself is funded through donations by the Pew Charitable Trusts, the John D. Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Turner Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the Heinz Family Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the J.M. Kaplan Fund, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation.

Oh yes….The Joyce Foundation…..Obama was on the Board of Directors at the Joyce Foundation.

Oh and isn’t it ironic that both Environmental Defense Fund and Pew are also members of the USCAP (US Climate Action Partnership)?

Would it appear that the outcome of this Duke study was determined before the data was analyzed?
