Crap & Trade & the CE Industry
The products we manufacture and sell around the world are not evil products that suck energy and emit pollutants. They are the products of growth and development by and for mankind. Can we manage to produce and manufacture with a cleaner attitude? Certainly that is of value. But if you think that automobiles emit too much CO2, imagine how much horses would be emitting if we did not have these vehicles? And I’m not even talking about the clean up of the environmental waste product they would produce! Henry Ford said that he never gave any consideration to making a better horse.
Can we get greener and build smarter products? Yes we can. Yes we can. Yes we can. (Oops, sorry.) But there is no reason to find ways to destroy an entire manufacturing sector by taxing that sector and running it back into the ground.
Where is your voice on this issue before you see your business taxed out of existence? Learn as much as you can about what is under consideration and make a decision on where you land on the legislation. Then let your voice be heard on whichever side that may be.
