While it is nice that measures are finally being taken so that the whole planet doesn't die, it is probably too late to stop the arctic ice caps from melting. We should start investing into new housing and land development for when the ocean rises, so that refugees from sea level would have somewhere to live.


It's not too late. If we fully implement the plans to cut back on emissions, we should be able to avert the worst of it.

Better than an uninhabitable planet.

I can afford to pay extra for a cleaner environment, it's really np, but some of the people I care for that live in poverty cannot afford even a bit tacked onto their bills. There's always pros and cons to these things.



According to the EPA, there will only be a rise in electricity bill of about 1-2% until about 2020 when bills will start declining until they are about 10% less than they are now.

On the other hand PACE says that this bill will probably trigger a series of negative consequences eventually leading to the US devolving into a state of anarchy the likes of which haven't been seen since Escape From New York.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see how this pans out

1 to 2 percent sounds doable. After reading about this, I think I like it. Although it doesn't sound major, it is a step in the right direction.

To pay for the difference, just don't buy that can of soda and that bag of chips. Unless you're in extreme poverty, this rise in the electricity bill is insignificant. I'd start raising my eyebrows at increases of around 10 percent and above.
