Labor Unions and Global Warming

By February 24, 2008Global Warming, Labor Unions

A voice worth hearing from as Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and many legislators propose a regulatory crusade against carbon dioxide.

John Holt, president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Unions Local 1900 in Largo, which represents 1,700 power plant and electrical system workers in the state, predicted that the law could shut down power plants.

“They have basically said, ‘Trust us: We won’t lose any revenues and we won’t lose any jobs,'” Holt said of the bill’s sponsors.

    I live in Maryland. If there is one thingh us Marylanders know is NOT to listen to the Governor. He never lives up to what he says. He promised us not to raise the electircal bill–It went up 72 percent. Another 5 percent increase is coming. He just increased our sales tax 20 percent. He just passed a 1.4 BILLION dollar tax increase on the State population. How much of OUR money is he going to request to fighht Global warming???
