McCain to pitch climate-change plan in Oregon
John McCain heads to the Pacific Northwest today to propose a climate-change plan, addressing an issue integral to his presidential bid in a region that could be crucial.
The Arizona senator, who often cites climate change as a policy difference with President Bush, plans to renew support for a "cap-and-trade" system that "sets clear limits on all greenhouse gases, while also allowing the sale of rights to excess emissions," according to excerpts of his speech released Sunday.
"The facts of global warming demand our urgent attention, especially in Washington," McCain says in the prepared remarks.
This is not about the climate, this is about control. Once this is successfuly implemented for industry theses nutjobs will move it to the individual. Your household will have a carbon limit.
Your thermostat, your dryer, your vehicles, your food, your recreation, will all be subject to governments oversight.
Get ready for cold showers, hanging your laundry, hot summers, cold winters and add an extra 180% to your commute time because you are going to be taking the bus.
And Dear McCain: What "facts" are you talking about? Can you cite something specific? Change in ocean temperature? Global warming movies that haven't been proven full of outright lies?
