The Telegraph has published a very informative article regarding the actual costs of upcoming Cap & Trade programs (read "taxes") in both the UK and the USA. Current estimates are as follows:
- UK: £760 per household every year for four decades
- USA: $4,500 per household every year (duration not provided)
And remember, this is all to "fight" a "problem" that a growing number of skeptics say does not exist. Gordon Brown, who has come close to bankrupting Britain during his reign as the Exchequer and now as the Prime Minister, clearly DOES NOT CARE. Watch for Barack Obama to leave a very similar legacy. :-(
Update: Later in the day I discovered that Lord Christopher Monckton discussed this very subject with Roy Green. You can listen to it here, beginning at 6:00.
