Bill Maher received quite a shock on his show last Friday when his guest, Governor Brian Schweitzer (D-MT), said cap-and-trade was the wrong approach.

Schweitzer, who heads the Democratic Governors Association, explained that cap-and-trade, says to the biggest utilities in America we are going to add a trillion dollars to your bottom line we are going to franchise you and only you to be the producers of CO2. I think its the wrong approach.

Maher was clearly shocked that the Governor wouldnt go along and endorse cap-and-trade. Maher was exasperated, and asked, But isnt it the Democrat approach?

Schweitzer responded by saying It might be some of the Democrats approach, but I think if you want to get to the root of the problem you establish a price of the cost of that pollution to the rest of society
