    one with a subsidy provided to individuals keyed to their income tax rate), I still believe a cap and trade system is the only mechanism that has any chance of making a dent in climate warming.  Wyden's hands-across-the-aisle approach has NOTHING to do with confronting global warming and everything to do with spending government money into existing carbon-based energy with a token thrown to renewable energy sources.  This might have made some sense for global warming 20 or 30 years ago, but today it truly is putting lipstick on a pig.
