#1 If the bill passes, does Gore go away?

#2 At this point the bill is so full of special interest provisions, so full of arcane language, so full of exceptions and exceptions to the exceptions, so full of contingencies and required reports and required studies that it should be an embarrassment to the authors. Yesterday, the Wapo, essentially came out against it on these grounds.

Bring it on.

#3 “…following a deal between House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman and Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson.”

The Climate Change Boondoggle has been in the works for years and as recently as last week even the proponents couldn’t agree on the validity of their “facts” and figures. Now Rep. Peterson, in the 11th hour, was able to get both the agriculture and forestry industries exempt from the definition of a “capped sector”. Yet, according to the EPA, the agricultural sector alone was responsible for 6 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. So one would assume those exemptions would substantially alter Waxman’s previous calculations. Don’t worry…you can bet thier “deal” has it all worked out.

#4 So what I want to know, how many of our supposed 'leaders' in the House/Senate/Administration that are trying to ram this POS through, are personally invested in the "GoreCap" trading firms or markets?

#5 I wonder if Gore was asked to stay home because Obama didn't a cold snap to hit the DC area on the day of the House vote?

#6 “Former Vice President Al Gore canceled plans to fly to Washington for a news conference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday…”

Ha…Waxman and Pelosi caved at the last minute and offered an enticement bribe to Democrats from Timber producing districts. (Upper NW) Over strong objections, from none other then Al Gore, they are allowing “Biomass” to be defined as a renewable energy source. According to Gore, the use of Biomass will only “encourage unsustainable logging in federal forests to meet demand for biomass power plants.” Not to mention this decision really throws the promises of CO2 reduction benefits, as envisioned in this bill, into a tailspin. The MSM narrative was Al politely declined his invitation so as not to upstage Obama. However, reality suggests Gore was home pouting.

#9 Any bill on global warming is going to be shaky because the concept of global warming is shaky.

#10 apparently, it passed 219-212 with eight GOPers voting for it. Malkin is hunting down their names, addresses, emails, license plates...etc.

A monumental bill that none of these idiots even READ should be qualifications for removal, tar and feathering, and loss of pension

#12 Blue Staters all! No surprises here. Food stamps cash-for-clunkers, natural gas, electricity, and heating oil vouchers for the "poor and needy" ... here they come!

#13 Look for electric bills to double and everything else to go up less. Basically a trillion dollar/year anchor on the American economy.

#14 My congresscritter, NutLoebsack, voted for it. Big shocka there, especially since the little weasel who answered the phone in his office refused to say how he voted. The university twits are gonna be so happy...until the heating bills come in.
