EPA Employees Silenced for Exposing the Cap and Trade Sham

A pair of EPA lawyers expose the complete fraud known as the “Cap and Trade” tax. It’s really a money grab masquerading as helping the environmental. The EPA and the White House are trying to silence this opposing viewpoint.

From the article [full link]:

When Zabel and Williams released a video on the Internet expressing their concerns over the Obama administration’s plans to use a cap and trade program to fight climate change, they were told to keep it to themselves.

Laurie Williams and husband Alan Zabel worked as lawyers for the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, in its San Francisco office for more than 20 years, and they know more about climate change than most politicians. But when the couple released a video on the Internet expressing their concerns over the Obama administration’s plans to use cap-and-trade legislation to fight climate change, they were told to keep it to themselves.

Williams and Zabel oppose cap and trade — a controversial government allowance program in which companies are issued emissions limits, or caps, which they can then trade — as a means to fight climate change.

[...]

“Cap-and-trade with offsets provides a false sense of progress and puts money in the pockets of investors,” Zabel said in the video. “We think that these restrictions might not be constitutional,” he said.

    Cap and Trade is simply a tax scheme and a way for major corporations to actually avoid cleaning up their mess. It’s not much different than the new health-care tax.

    I think “Cap-and-Trade” tax system is a dead policy walking. Cap-and-trade combines a regulatory cap on greenhouse gas emissions with a market-based scheme to trade as financial instruments the “permits” to produce those emissions. However, the recent financial crisis and economic downturn only exposes its vulnerability.

    There are so many factors that go into consideration whenever the government and any abiding agency clash. What services does the EPA actually provide? Most people don’t know. It’s good that someone is at least being vocal about the changes to our environmental policy.

    Well,
    It seems like nowadays just about all of the social programs are money for grabs. I was watching the video “John Stossel – money whole” It is crazy what government spends money on, I’m sure those spending are not without some ones personal interest

    Ithink that cap and trade is totally outdated and may at the time helped in reducing acid rain, but now our issues are much greater. Carbon offset is so open to abuse and profiteering that it should not be entertained. I especially liked your example of paying someone not to cut down their forest, when they had no intention of doing so in the first place only for the wood in demand to be sourced elsewhere.
    I think it’s not just industry that can be targeted to opt for clean energy. If congress were to pay for the installation of solar panels on all south facing roofs of domestic premises, the infrastructure is already in place to collect the enery generated, the householder could receive cheaper fuel. The cost of solar panels and installation would spiral downwards due to mass production, competition etc. Surely a long term cheap clean solution.

    I don’t know if cap and trade would work or not. I think we should all not pre-judge new ideas based on our political party affiliations. It makes more sense to approach issues more like scientists. Whenever there is a new idea…test it first on a small scale. Our politicians need to be constantly testing new ideas. Then only after it has worked on a small scale, expand it…regardless of which party thought of it.

    I have to agree with the previous comment. Give cap and trade a chance. Testing ideas on a small scale is a good way to experiment.

    In any decision the government makes it would be good if they get the people’s opinions first.

    Do you know if they did any follow up videos on this subject of Cap and Trade?

    “Lets just say I know of a company that is in serious violation & are disposing of chemicals improperly & not using proper safety precautions & putting their employees in danger? thanks” – it’s funny that you said that. I think if you look at china that will be the case for every company. It’s amazing that natural and people’s lives worth nothing over there.

    And all along I thought that such things happened in third world countries only. This is definitely a sham to protect the corporate world. I agree with Charlie who has advocated for solar panels on all south facing roofs but all these pleas are futile. The hydrocarbon people have too much at stake to allow anyone interfering with their long range plans. And did you know some of the companies are dismantling their plants to Asian and African countries as if they exist on another planet and emissions will not affect the overall global warming

    Technological advancements are our world’s only real hope for a future that uses more renewable energy, not Washington-based legislation.

    You can have all the crazy environmental ideas you want and try to convince yourself that they are real but other than wind and solar power –both of which have extremely limited uses– something called ‘cold fusion’ is the only hope we have in the foreseeable future for safe, clean and sustainable energy… not cap & trade.
