What will Cap'n'Trade boost?

    Seriously, I love how tenacious you are with this, keep it up, girl! The media isn't going to cover this, so WE need to make people aware!

    The only problem is that the people who have their heads in the sand on the issue are not looking at these posts. If its abourtion or gay marriage they are all over that though. Strange.
