Title: [GreenYes] Re: 2 new messages in 2 topics - digest

I agree with John R. Cap and tax is better than cap and trade.

The idea of pollution pricing applies to garbage as well. After all, 
garbage concentrates all our material and energy mistakes. A national 
tax on waste will go a long way to correcting the subsidized 
landfills and incinerators that we have which encourages the waste to 
keep on flowing. The tax collected should be dedicated to industrial 
efficiency and waste reduction.
