Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

Benefits of carbon trading dubious

I looked at the Analysis Group site and model quoted in The Sun's editorial regarding the benefits of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative ("Cap and growth," Nov. 16). I would love to see what companies hired the 16,000 estimated jobs produced. The model must be the same one used to justify the government's investment in Solyndra, and also the model you used to say the U.S. should emulate the European financial solution.

I would also like to know who paid for the analysis. It obviously was short on facts and the answer was known before inputs were made.

Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville
