As my readers know I am no fan of global warming alarmists or even of global warming. I have written many posts about the flaws in their storyline (footnote). Further, while is is indisputable that CO2 is increasing in our atmosphere, I am not convinced that the increase is necessarily bad.
But let’s, for the moment, agree that some level of concern is warranted. In addition to my “global warming skepticism” there are many reasons to hate the plans that have been proffered to deal with the issue – not the least of which is that they increase the size, power and reach of the government. But what if there were a plan to reduce carbon emissions that lessened the power of government, decreased regulation, and used free market techniques to induce people to WANT TO reduce their carbon footprint. If Americans “want to” do virtually anything that does not harm another American, my libertarian bent would not try to stop it.
A friend and reader (CAG) sent this to me. I looked at the title and thought this will be a waste of 15 minutes of my life. It was not. Please watch this. This could work.
