Yet Another Sign McCain Is Not A ConservativeTopics: Political News and commentaries
When it comes to global warming, conservatives are not convinced there is a problem, are convinced the left's expensive solution wouldn't work, but are willing to consider the matter further. - What Conservatives Think 'About Global Warming'Senator John McCain has once again taken a position that puts him in league with leading Democratic contenders - Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, and former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina. McCain continues to be the Republican in name only that conservatives have known him to be.
A panel discussion on global climate change Tuesday found Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) staff agreeing with representatives for the leading Democratic presidential contenders. A cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions, they agreed, is the most promising solution to "global warming." A cap-and-trade system would involve limits or caps (lower than current levels) on the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions produced by polluters like power plants. But companies able to cut their CO2 output at a low cost would be able to sell their left-over pollution permits to companies facing higher costs. John Raidt, a policy advisor to McCain, said during a discussion at the left-leaning Brookings Institution that the Arizona Republican is a "foremost proponent of carbon cap-and-trade."A key player in the present immigration fiasco and a "sky is falling liberal" on global warming, McCain has about as much chance of getting the conservative vote as Osama bin-Laden.
