Trash the RGGI

I am so glad Gov. Youngkin wants to trash the RGGI.  It is a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff blush.   Where do these funds go?  How does it help you or the environment you are so worried about?

Last year I decided to do some research on RGGI.   Basically it is cap and trade of CO2 and it is a slush fund that each utility customer pays into so the utility companies can engage in solar and wind energy expansion.  The powers that be in the world have decided that water and air gases are no longer free as a part of being born into this world.  Utility companies release CO2 as part of their power production.  So some smart person decided to trade and make money on CO2, SO2 and NOX ( do some research) , buying and selling it in the form of credits.  There are those who have more money than wits.  This new industry was promoted by the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland as a way to demonize CO2, which is one of the main constituents of life.  Without CO2 in large quantities, life would cease to exist on earth.  All vegetation would die including trees, turning the earth into a giant barren desert.   

I don't like to preach out the basics of biology and chemistry that you should have learned in high school, but apparently many of you don't remember these classes.  Yes, today we do have good CO2 levels and it has produced a more lush, green and livable earth.  I am not saying you should connect your nostrils up to a CO2 machine, because it is the vegetative matter that requires CO2.  Without vegetation, even the vegans amongst us would die.  Let alone the various animals that we need to provide nutrients that are not provided by vegetation.  

We should all be supporting Gov. Youngkin in getting rid of this slush fund that does our earth no good.

Carbon credits and carbon sequestration are all part ofthe same program.  Big money investors trade in a quickly growing market that operates on creating a false narrative. Created by the super wealthy banks and individuals in tandem with the federal government.  Power companies creat hugh carbon derivatives marketing sub companies ala Enron.  Research the debacle of Enron and see how many went to jail for that company's big cheat.  It's called the emissions market.  Government tells you that you must pay for the air you breathe, the water you use even if you have a well, yada yada yada.  

This is a huge scam perpetrated on people who don't know the facts.  I just gave you some of those facts.
