Quote – From the preamble to a piece of failed New Hampshire legislation that would have removed the state from RGGI.

No state or nation has enhanced economic opportunities [from cap-and-trade and] Europe's cap-and-trade system has been undermined by political favoritism and accounting tricks.

It turned out that the line was cribbed from an industry fact sheet that provides politicians with blueprint for anti-RGGI legislation. And Euorope's cap-and-trade system works very well. “Koch-funded group mounts cut-and-paste attack on regional climate initiatives”, by David Anderson.
