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.

  • How are the windmills running on this hot day? Im not in K.S. and I really dont know. 6/27/09 3:23 pm WV time

  • @ 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.
