Today hundreds gathered in at the State Capitol in Madison, Wi to oppose Al Gore and his alarmist Climate Change policies. Despite the cold, an enthusiastic crowd gathered to send Al Gore a clear message: “Don’t Fry Our Economy!”
“It was an amazing turnout, even though rain and cold usually keeps people away. We were out to tell Al Gore and his friends that Cap and Trade will kill our economy, take jobs away, and tax American families out of their homes,” said UW CFACT president Alex Hansen.
Senator Glenn Grothman and Representative Jim Ott both spoke on the truth about climate change and the affect this legislation would have on Wisconsin families.
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, and Phelim McAleer (director of the film Not Evil Just Wrong) who were attending the conference Al Gore spoke at, dropped by to say hi to the friendly crowd and also comment on the devastation Cap and Trade will bring to the U.S. economy.
“People are concerned. These policies affect real human beings, real families. If enacted, especially globally, they will kill people. Countries cannot develop industry using solar and wind power alone. These policies will keep these countries back, and move the United States in the wrong direction for progress,” says CFACT Upper Midwest Director Christina Wilson.
Cap and Trade will cost over 1 million jobs average per year. These are American jobs that will not come back, they will be gone forever. Students at UW and members of the Madison community gathered to show their opposition to Cap and Trade. Chants of “Stop Cap and Trade” and “Save Our Jobs” echoed throughout the Capitol square. We hope this message reaches ears all over the U.S.
