In order to send a message to the US Senate to ensure the Cap and Trade bill never lands on President Obama’s desk, a Black Ribbon Protest is being organized grass roots style. Please add a black ribbon to your blog, web site, facebook, etc. You can also cut ribbons from fabric, plastic bags, anything black and tie them to trees, doors, car antenna, or pets (please not on the fish).
If this bill passes it will kill jobs, raise prices on virtually every product, increase our dependence on foreign oil as refineries move to Mexico and other countries to escape the taxes here. As jobs and industry move to countries to escape the tax, the net effect of the bill will not reduce CO2 at all, but simply move it to countries that welcome the jobs.
We will be left with higher prices and fewer jobs.
