Google "Al Gore" and "Generation Investment Management" for plenty of  
information NOT from Republicans, on how Gore stands to make a lot of  
money by persuading people of the dangers of global warming.  He's in  
the process of peddling a second currency, called "carbon credits",  
and trying to convince the government to make you buy them with real  
money if you want to use more than your government-assigned quota.   
If you like that idea, imagine the bureaucratic boondoggle of trying  
to assign not only a carbon quota to each US citizen but to each  
daily activity.

Carbon emissions are a byproduct of technological civilization, and  
the more technology is produced, the more carbon.  The US could have  
the carbon footprint of Africa if it had Africa's living standard,  
but I doubt that even the 10% of us that would survive under those  
conditions would approve of the switch.
