I found a lengthy article in Britain’s Daily Mail reprinting an expose of what we we all could have predicted: the scams that are behind carbon credit trading. Rather than dissect the article myself (lazy me), I sent it to my friend Laer, whose business is providing PR representation for corporations that find themselves on the wrong end of the Greenies’ gun. No surprise, therefore, that Laer read the article, distilled its essence, and came up with a short, punchy post about a costly (and often deadly) scam — and one that cap-and-trade will likely make a whole lot costlier.
On a related note, I’ve written before how about my curmedgeonly little son has become anti-Green in response to the endless proselytizing and propaganda at his elementary school. With his contrarion personality, this wasn’t too surprising. What was surprising, however, was when my cheerful little daughter, the one who loves middle school and just absorbs every lesson, blew up at her father this morning when he told her to put something in the recycling bin. “I’m sick of all this Green stuff. It’s all they talk about in school. I just don’t care. They never leave us alone.” Apparently even children can take only so much indoctrination.
