[Grovenet] Carbon Quotas in Support of Free Enterprise

That's what Kyoto provides for on an international scale. Nations can trade
carbon credits depending upon their needs. That allows nations not using
their full quota of carbon-based fuels to gain further incentive to keep use
low by selling the credits, and it penalizes those over-using them with the
high cost of open-market carbon quotas purchased from other nations,
encouraging them to cut back! 

Free enterprise Capitalism at work! Who but a Communist or Socialist would
be against that?

Steven,

This reminds me of the way I used to trade food
ration cards when I was still in Poland.  There were
ration cards for almost everything: meat, sugar,
even vodka.  I didn't (and still don't) use sugar
so I traded those for vodka or meat cards.  
Sometimes, I would trade the cards for money or 
even use them as gifts.

Ah, the good old times in workers' paradise....
