5. Cap and Trade..
Was never a real solution. Maybe if they took out the trading part it would be viable.

Seriously, I like Caps and heavy friggin fines a lot better.

When you speed do you get to trade your excessive acceleration to another pokey driver in order to get out of paying a fine? Only wealthy corporations would have conceived of something this idiotic.

As far as this guy deciding to show deference and humility to 'the other side' he is a fool. He is compromising with a cannibal over what body parts will be for supper tonight. It is absurd.
