3. Higher taxes, fewer freedoms....

Cap and trade and collecting fees for polluting and carbon intensive products and services is the right thing to do to raise money to pay for the changes and improvements we need to make.

Freepers probably think we want to pocket it, but they are right in saying that we will be wanting to raise money behind this, and to the extent that we'll stop subsiding gas guzzlers and force them to buy efficient light bulbs, you could say that we'll be taking away their freedoms, too.
