Eco-statists fighting Dems' Cap-and-Trade Scheme as too weak

Green Hell reports that the eco-statists are gearing up for a war against the Democrats' egregious carbon trading scheme. They feel it isn't restrictive enough.

Carbon Control News reports that two “environmental justice” groups (Communities for a Better Environment and California Communities Against Toxics) sued the state of California on June 10 alleging the state’s climate change program violates its 2006 global warming law...

"[It] could foreshadow similar legal challenges facing a federal GHG cap-and-trade program, because the California groups, who question the effectiveness of emissions trading, are also opposed to the Waxman-Markey climate change legislation."

I heard someone refer to Cap-and-trade as "Tax-and-Kill". The name is apt.
