"Carbon credits"--a disguised way to tax the gullible

Tax carbon dioxide? I exhale it every breath! Plants use it in the photosynthesis cycle! This is just another way to collect funds from unknowing, unsuspecting ignorant voters. It is, and never will be, a clear-cut, measurable way to do anything, and electricity generators users are prevented from keeping any taxes collected, meaning it will go to the state gov't. It will harm far more people (electricity generating employers and employees, all people paying power bills) than it will help.

Base decisions on facts, not emotions. Avoid any carbon tax schemes.
