Grist Sponsors Presidential Forum

Grist Sponsors Presidential Forum. I was there sitting with CNN as it were. Good presentation and I give the highest marks to Hillary. Edwards and Kucinich reached too far in fighting world poverty, which makes real problem solving on global warming by rich countries and China look like it's in the realm of the Miss America pagent. Don't bite off too much. Just get something viable. And soon.

Although only three candidates showed up, others who propose things like carbon taxes for everyone on a gallon of gas are losing proposals in my view. We have enough poor people taxes as it is. What we need are corporate penalties for not producing the same dirty coal and gas and credits for converting to green energy. Carbon credits. Only then we get them from free market capitalism. The beauty of this system is it can be directed to produce any damn thing we need. It just needs a little nudge. A truly green eccomony will be the result and profits will soar from helping insdtead of hurting our home. We can do this.
