3. best last chance?
we had better pick a solution other than cap and trade, then. because it won't do shit except make carbon traders rich.

build new green infrastructure now. cut all red tape. nukes, solar, wind. built and maintained by taxes, just like the interstate highways.

or, we could spend tons of money buying carbon credits from non-producing nations while China signs the deal and then cheats on it and keeps burning coal anyway. oh, and more of our jobs go there to seal the deal.

fuck that. cap and trade is less than useless. this problem is real, and it requires more than international politics fiddlefucking a new way to enrich themselves while sticking it to all of us.
