my words, i will only post part of this , it has been posted,

WASHINGTON -Hours after the House passed landmark legislation meant to curb greenhouse gas emissions and create an energy-efficient economy, President Barack Obama on Saturday urged senators to show courage and follow suit.

Success will be tougher in the Senate. Majority Leader Harry Reid says he wants to take up the legislation by the fall. Sixty 60 votes will be needed to overcome any Republican filibuster.
The "razor-thin vote in the House spells doom in the Senate," said Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., the top Republican on the Senate's environment panel.

Opponents complain about the costs and say some industries will simply move their operations and jobs out of the U.S. to countries that don't control greenhouse-gas emissions.
Supporters and opponents agreed the legislation would lead to higher energy costs. But they disagreed on the impact on consumers.

I truely hope this fails, wonder why Gore was a no-show ???
There are still years of studies on this to come up with a positive solution and with many scientists disputing it already seems Obama is jumping to fast. This could be a costly mistake one being paid for years after we are all dead and gone and a burden left to our children and their children.

Read Roscos full article on In the News thread, this bill will cause alot of companies to make drastic changes , when that happens of course the cost is passed to the consumer (us).

I am willing to improve energy and our dependency on foreign oil ,we have to consider the future, if it cost more for the consumer and creates more jobs, insures more safe air to breath ,I m for it.

I can remember what 20 years ago how bad the pollutants were in our water way,lakes,streams,major clean up was projected, people got together to do this, we still need to do more. lots more

We the people are keepers of this earth,we take, and take never giving back, it is time to give back..if it cost consumers so be it,these wars cost us also` maybe we should be sure before we leap into another,our armies will protec us from enemies, but who will protect this atmosphere we share? The people~
wars are also a burden to our children /future generations..

there is no guarantee more jobs will be created, as was stated many companies will just leave the united states for a country that has no greenhouse laws, but none of this is know for sure. as i have stated, there are scientist that believe both ways, if this passes, and it very well may not, there will i think be a backlash in public opinion on obama approval ratings, the cost will be down the road some , thats why our children will pay. but all this is speculation and should be taken that way,,, just have to see what develops, i really dont think the problem is that bad as to cause more taxes in this economy.just an opinion,

//there is no guarantee that it won't create jobs,I just hope more nuclear designs are in the bill.and your post is right on speculation,
my thoughts is why wait till something is crucial, like letting pollution get bad as it did in our water ways before a bill is passed, and fines are projected for the abuse, clean up always cost more than prevention.
our children will pay for wars, on mistakes made, falsehoods, and many other things.
we are still paying for past presidents/political mistake and will way down the road~ nothing new there.

most of the waisted money is from congressional pork and not any opinionated presidental mistakes. i dont see any nuclear reactors that will be built, they too were very much under fire, and ppl protested them, like the 3 mile island thing, and browns ferry in tenn was shut down because of problems, we have used coal for power for decades and i dont see a problem, i think the power companies will just pay the taxes on coal if it even passes and just raise power rates to cover them, i think i said most of this is not until 2020 anyway, but not sure on the details, plus this all may be for nothing the senate may not even pass it. as tax details come out and ppl write the senators, the senate is not the house in how it does business.
