<div style="margin-left:.5in"><span><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;line-height:115%">Nevertheless, the Obama Administration is determined to implement global warming regulations that will impose the largest tax increase in American history, generate higher energy prices, and destroy jobs with very little impact on global greenhouse gases.  Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) analysis has shown that cap-and-trade would fail to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, something its proponents claim is
 central to cap-and-trade legislation.  China has already passed the United States as the leading carbon dioxide emitter, and India is not far behind.  Without matching efforts to limit these gases among developing nations, the United States stands to lose thousands of jobs, many of which would go to countries without global warming regulations.  In reality, unilateral action would result in increased emissions globally, because efficient manufacturing in our country would be exported to less efficient countries without greenhouse gas emission restrictions.  I am thus committed to stopping legislation that would impose financial hardships on the American people under the auspices of providing a solution to climate change.</span></font></span> </div>
