Opposition to Climate Change Legislation is Apparently All Semantics

“Cap and trade has certainly been demonized,” said Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.). “I think that’s unfortunate. ... So we’ll just call it something different.”

This Politico piece describes the belief by many climate change legislation proponents that today's strong opposition to the concept of economy-wide emission controls is based largely on misunderstanding and mischaracterizations of the Lieberman-Warner, Waxman-Markey, Kerry-Lieberman -like "cap-and-trade" proposals.
