1. The perm still links to Federalism. Any energy policy management at the federal levelwould collapse global federalism and lead to war.2. The perm would force preemption – it’s impossible for the plan and CP to exist

The best case for federal preemption would arise if the federal government instituted a similar
cap-and-trade
system
or other form of comprehensive carbon emissions regulation.
Any program that created anationwide price
for carbon
would likely be interpreted as directly conflicting with state programs;
inthe alternative,
courts would probably hold that federal efforts occupy the field of GHG regulation
. Butlacking such a program, as is currently the case, it is difficult to see any way in which a state-organized cap-and-trade program could be preempted under the Supremacy Clause.
Some congressional leaders areadvocating for express preemption
in any future comprehensive cap-and-trade bill. The Dingell-Boucher white paper,68 which discusses the role of federal, state, and local governments in efforts to reduce GHGemissions, makes the case for express preemption.
“[O]nce a national, economy-wide cap-and-tradeprogram is adopted, State or regional cap-and-trade programs may interfere with the efficientfunctioning of the Federal cap-and-trade program[
.]”69 As a result, “Chairman Dingell has made it veryclear that he believes that motor vehicle greenhouse gas standards should be set by the Federal Government,not by State governments[.]”70 In addition, the analysis finds that
compliance costs and overall systemcosts
(including regulatory overhead)
are likely to be higher in any duplicative system of federal andstate
/regional
regulation
.71 While the current version of the Lieberman-Warner bill actually encourages and provides incentives for states to take actions above and beyond the federal cap-and-trade program,72 there isa possibility that
an express preemption clause could be part of any final bill.
3. Prefer the Counterplan alone – State programs are a prerequisite to federal action – theyprovide a template.

,http://e360.yale.edu/content/feature.msp?id=2015The federal government in the Bush era has done little to tackle our most pressing environmental problem — climate change. Yet there is one bright side amid Washington’s inaction:
Many states have been steppinginto the void and adopting comprehensive climate change policies that can be a model for
the
comingfederal legislation
to slow global warming.
The leadership of states
such as California, Arizona,Connecticut, New Jersey, and Florida
is crucial
not only
because it provides a template for federal climatelegislation that will no doubt be adopted
under the next presidential administration. State action is alsovital because among the top 75 emitters of greenhouse gases worldwide, half are U.S. states.
4. (Optional) The perm would still link to politics/elections. Explain.
