Thank God I hope it happens. That way other countries will be in an economic boom while the U.S. suffers. Just like the previous Great Depression.

i saw documentary on this..apparently this is how carbon crediting works..you buy or invest in it, and kinda like a bank, you get interest* thats my understanding of it, though might be wrong..
why should anyone pay for damage(releasing of carbon) when big oil comapnys are charging an arm n leg at the pump, let alone home heating oil, and is known to let more carbon into the atmosphere than solar power? its all about profits $$$$$ f it wasnt involving $$$$$ they all would care less if we all choked to death form thier by product.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- In yet another alarm bell of a weakening U.S. economy, the job market took a disappointing turn in May.
The economy gained a mere 54,000 jobs in the month, a significant slowdown from 232,000 jobs added to payrolls in April, the government reported Friday.
"It is now pretty clear that the economy ran into a brick wall last month," said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist for Capital Economics, in a research note. "The extent of this slowdown is becoming a big concern."

You're 100% correct. They'll fix it, because without money, the political structure, statutory law enforcement and various other similar fictional things are baseless. So they loose control. A good sovereign/creditor is always in control
Black monday was the largest banking stress test ever, utillising the DTCC, the largest bank in the world that no one knows about. It was a clear demonstration the system can be restored from just about anything.

Collapse= our currency is worthless, and our national creditors are banging on the door.
