Tim Phillips, president of Americans For Prosperity, just finished his opening speech. He had a few things to say about global warming, including a question about why it's now called climate change...
He says Cap and Trade legislation should be known as 'duck and cover' as it will:

- cost as many as 1.2 million jobs over all industry sectors
- reduce individual freedom by regulating everything from how much energy you use to how much CO2 you can emit
