Talk:Cap and Trade
Summary of Changes in Rewrite
I did a minor rewrite, more a reorganization, so that information which seemed to belong together was together. As it was, the article seemed to jump back and forth between descriptions of the program, criticisms, and motivations.
I'm not clear, but the article had quoted an individual, Dr. Gabriel Calzada, who works at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, then later gave another quote attributed to "Carlos," which I've changed to "Calzada" in accordance with the reference for these quotes.
Just wanted to explain why I re-wrote/re-organized this page. JacobB 09:36, 14 July 2009 (EDT)
This article treats cap and trade as if the sole focus is on climate change. With the first development of cap and trade in 1977, every president from Reagan to G W Bush has used cap and trade to reduce or eliminate pollution such as CFCs, acid rain, and leaded gasoline. In fact cap and trade has enjoyed decades of bipartisan support until Pres. Obama assumed office, Even McCain and Palin supported the idea of using cap and trade to offset CO2 emissions. They both flip flopped when Obama came on board. This article should reflect reality instead of being used to score political points. --NormaN 15:00, 27 October 2013 (EDT)
