Should Big Brother inventory your life?

Marc Morano reported on ClimateDepot.com that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is touring China.

She’s there in part to promote the Administration’s “Green” agenda that will cost millions of American jobs and restrict the freedoms of US citizens.

The Associated Press quoted Pelosi saying the following when she was asked how Americans can cut back the size of their carbon footprints:

Excerpt from the May 28, 2009 AP article:

In answering a question from a student about how Pelosi was going to get Americans to cut back on their carbon emissions, the leading Democratic lawmaker said it was important to educate children on how to conserve energy and for citizens to build more environmentally friendly homes.

“We have so much room for improvement,” she said. “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory … of how we are taking responsibility.”

What I find ironic about this quote is that the Chinese are actually building one coal-fired power plant every single week to keep up with demand. This increases China’s carbon footprint by more than the US would reduce it’s footprint if it implements the new Cap N’ Trade (Energy Tax) legislation pending befoe Congress. Yes, that’s right, the new legislation will cost over 1.5 million jobs and do absolutely NOTHING to reduce the worldwide production of carbon dioxide.
