To help grease the skids for Barack Obama's proposed "Cap and Trade" carbon dioxide tax, Time Magazine published an article called "Putting a Price Tag on the Melting Ice Caps." Predictably, they estimated the damages to be so astronomically high that the president's intent to downsize American industry while pumping trillions out of the economy seems like a bargain.
There's just one problem: the same day Time's scare piece hit the stands, researchers announced that arctic ice was actually growing dramatically, owing to "unusually cold weather."
Also "growing dramatically" is the scientifically-supported opinion that man-caused Global Warming / Climate Change is a myth.
The Democrats' "Healthcare Reform" was never about healthcare, and always about redistribution of wealth. Similarly, "Cap and Trade" is not about energy or the environment, but is also about redistribution of wealth. It is an ambitious and all-encompassing strategy of "Stealth Socialism," attempting to fly under America's radar.
And that should put a chill up enough spines to assure that the ice caps will never melt.
