"All Pain, No Gain"

Unfortunately this petition has no where for a Canadian to sign - But if you are an American please go to the site and add your name to the list.

Oppose Cap and Trade Policies

Protect American jobs, energy, and prosperity from global warming hype
Efforts to control man-made "greenhouse gases" through mandatory policies like cap and trade are nothing more than "All Pain, No Gain" – all economic pain for no environmental gain.
•Energy Tax: Proposals like cap and trade are simply a massive tax on energy use – on everything we heat, cool, drive, make, grow, eat, and do – and will therefore cause the price of everything to skyrocket.
•Hurts Americans: These proposals will harm all Americans by exorbitantly raising gasoline prices and utility bills, sending jobs overseas, perpetuating the myth that "green jobs" will grow our economy, and acting as a huge "regressive tax" that will especially hurt the poor and our nation's seniors on fixed incomes.
•Failing Science: An outpouring of peer-reviewed studies, data, and skeptical scientists from around the world debunks the alleged "consensus" about man-made global warming. The Earth is well within natural climate variability, climate fear is being driven by unproven computer models, and it is preposterous for the EPA, White House, or Congress to call carbon dioxide a "pollutant."
•Purely Symbolic: Congressional proposals like cap and trade, and international treaties like the Kyoto Protocol, are purely symbolic efforts at reducing emissions and stabilizing the climate. Even President Obama's own EPA admits cap-and-trade policies will have no detectable impact on global CO2 levels or temperatures. U.N. treaties will also be meaningless since developing nations like China and India have no intention of setting definite CO2 limits. Read more.
