Green Thinkers with valid arguments

This 10 min video is a "must see" . It is done by a couple of left leaning lawyers in San Francisco so it has "cred" by virtue it is not from another right wing zeolet like myself. I hope you notice that I try to understand all sides on this issue and will listen to anyone that has thought through their position.
First understand that they buy the hypothesis that Global Warming is a real danger and that it is caused by man made emissions of carbon dioxide (co2).
Their arguments are with the solution our inept congress is trying to foist on us, namely Cap N Trade with Offsets. They simply and eloquently present compelling logic and facts that expose the solution as ineffective. It won't help reduce co2 and at it's worst creates "perverse" incentives that will actually make the problem worse while enriching scoundrels that know how to exploit advantage from huge, unmanageable government programs. These people are called "rent seekers".

The 10 min video The Huge Mistake is organized as follows:
The Big Lie
The Big Ripoff
The Real solution.

Here is alink to their blog if you want to read more =>http://www.carbonfees.org/home/

Jerry: Can you get more info on their proposed solution.... the rebate solution. The video needed more detail on how that would work.

Excellent video otherwise.
