Won't they go back to business as usual and just charge the consumer more?
Could someone who supports the cap and trade tell me why this is a good idea?
I won't be able to afford more energy efficient appliances and home improvement. So, I won't be able to reduce my energy. What is the logic here?

Grace, and there is many credible scientist that believe the opposite. How come you believe some and not others?
What makes one argument more true than the other? Speaking for myself, I think there is more than ONE argument... But why is it that the Obama admin and congress will NOT recognize the Natural argument for climate change? If they would allow an actual DEBATE before they propose MASSIVE SPENDING, don't you think that would have allowed THE PEOPLE to feel better about the choices made? But NOOOOOOO, they have to take a 1000 page bill, add 300 pages of amendment at 3am, then Expect a VOTE in less than 12 hours of releasing.. WTF is that?

Logic?! There isn't any! That's what is so wrong with this bill! It's one thing to impose restrictions on businesses that pollute on a grand scale, but affecting the comforts of the private homeowner, is taking things a bit too far!!
The California Energy Commission has recently proposed a requirement that any new or modified heating or air conditioning system must include a programmable communicating thermostat (PCT) whose settings can be remotely controlled by government authorities.
Since the Cap & Trade (aka Climate Change Bill) was written by CA legislatures and rammed through Congress by Cali's own Pelosi, ALL of us can expect this to become reality should the Senate agree!
