Gloria La Riva on Energy & Oil

Party for Socialism and Liberation nominee for President


Our planet is facing a crisis from carbon dioxide build-up

Today, so much carbon dioxide has already built up in the environment that it endangers islands, coastlines and one-fifth to two-thirds of the world's species due to rising global temperatures. Yet, neither the Democrats nor the Republicans offer any real solution to the crisis our planet is facing.

Cap-and-trade allows polluters the right to pollute

The Democrats all call for emissions reductions, but generally advocate market-based "cap and trade" programs, which involve selling emissions credits. Emissions credits systems allow polluters to buy the "right" to emit a certain amount of greenhouse gas. If the corporation does not use up the credit, it can sell the credit to someone else, allowing that company to emit more gases.
