    Carbon taxes and carbon caps are critical to moving ourselves to a less carbon intense society and world.  We should all encourage our congressional representatives to support these intiatives.

    In the mean time, there are 154 coal fired plants on the drawing board, with only a handful planning to do co2 sequestration.  By the time we get carbon taxes and carbon caps, it will probably be too late to stop these planned coal plants.

    It is imperative that a moratorium be placed on these plants while we put in the necessary legislation to deal comphrehensively with the overall carbon problem.

    I find these diaries on DKos and message boards elsewhere a treasure trove of great information about global warming and what can be done. But remember, without political action, this is just a Freshman b.s. session.
