Kansans will be hurt by global warming bill


The Waxman-Markey climate bill, soon to be considered by Congress, will harm all Americans. Here’s a look at what it would cost Kansans. Two examples:

Higher cost for energy. “An average family could pay an additional $1,500 a year for energy.”

Fewer jobs: “For Kansas this could mean a loss of 22 thousand jobs just a few years from now. If those jobs were lost today it would increase Kansas’ unemployment rate from 6.1 percent to 7.6 percent.”

    It is so depressing the House passed this. We MUST stop it in the Senate! Thank goodness we have two Senators who will show some sanity on this one.

    @ Larry,

    Its about 96 degrees and about 2mph wind right now. Barely enough wind to move the leaves on the trees.

    I believe it takes about 10mph to even start up the windmills so the answer to how they’re running is they’re not! Thankfully we have coal/natural gas to keep the AC on today.
