Fred Upton = Henry Waxman-lite?

The chairman-designate of the House Energy and Commerce Committee said on Fox News Sunday today that he is in favor of regulating of carbon dioxide. According to a report in The Hill:

Asked whether he believes greenhouse gases are a problem in need of addressing at all, Upton replied, “we want to do this in a reasonable way,” and cited the need to boost development of energy sources like low-emissions coal, nuclear power and natural gas to meet growing demand.

I’m sure outgoing Energy Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman thought his plan to regulate CO2 was “reasonable” as well.

Prepare yourself for the coming GOP wimp-out

  1. Never forget there is more power in controlling and taxing carbon than anything that has happened in 795 years, the signing of the Magna Carta, because carbon generates 80% of all power. That is compelling to any politician member or the ruling class.
