I have to agree that something should be done, that pollution/polluters should be targeted and reined in.
However, like is mentioned above,Cap and Trade, as I am aware of it, is more of a Tax and Control scheme.
I would like to see policies that go after true pollutants and poisons that are being released into the enviroment, and not just something that we all exhale. Too many breathers out there, anyone?
Just another power grab.

While trained octopuses wake up from their cryo-sleep and attacked oil platform ,thus curbing world plastic production, evil collaborator travels the ocean in his giant bottle-ship unchallenged . Veni Vedi Plastiki.
It is not written in history books so must be true.
And on point - you think that it is bad that people get more open to how polluted the planet is? I do not think so, actually i think that even if it comes from person who made lots of money by polluting it - it still will get more good then doing nothing. And he did not mention carbon taxes even once.
