Sen. Craig believes a cap-and-trade system is pointless
OK, maybe it’s a good thing that the morally-challenged senator is on the other side of the debate. He recently said:
My position is perfectly clear: a cap and trade system is obsolete in its approach to green house gas reductions, it has not worked, and I do not see it working.
This is not, however, an especially new position for the conservative senator. Back in 1998, he said:
As more and more American scientists review the available data on global warming, it is becoming increasingly clear that the vast majority believe the commitments for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions made by the administration in the Kyoto Protocol are an unnecessary response to an exaggerated threat the vice president himself [Al Gore] is caught up in making.
Craig isn’t going to win a Nobel prize for prognostication …
