I know there are a lot of McCain supporters on here, so I can see why you think this is what you've been waiting for. But this is obviously another video that McCain supporters are trying to spin to make Obama look bad right before the election. Obama does not want to bankrupt coal plants, obviously, because's he's not stupid.

His position on the cap and trade system is well documented in other places. He wants to gradually reduce the number of coal credits to give the market time to adjust. He may not have put his position as clearly in this sound-bite in particular.

I think that the greenies have made a bad decision by trying to push the anthropogenic warming theory. Wether or not it's true, we didn't think about this thirty years ago. But we still came up with the EPA. Why? Because cars and coal plants make for bad air. There's a patently proven reason for reducing emissions. Whether or not global warming is even considered.

I'd like to be able to go to Los Angeles some day to visit friends and family there, and not feel like I'm suffocating. I literally have trouble breathing there. The health care costs that this is causing alone should cost justify some changes.

What's really more interesting about cap and trade programs is where the revenue gets shunted. If it's actually put into technology to improve energy production (like fusion), I think that's well considered. Or maybe to balance the budget.

Energy is a trust, and dealt with as one in the US. Because it's impossible to really have competition in the energy arena. The infrastructure costs are simply too high. Therefore the only way to produce change in this "industry" is to use artificial incentives. Yes there are short term costs. But we have to move to something better eventually. Might as well bite the bullet and get it over with sooner rather than later. I don't want to put the burden on my children. I'm sure they'll have plenty of challenges in their day (like paying down our financial bail-out).
