Yeah, and what devastating blow will that deal to the economy?

As Sowell says, there are three criteria to judge a plan upon. 1.‘Compared to what?’ 2.‘At what cost?’ 3.‘What hard evidence do you have?’

I love Sowell! I'm a few pages away from finishing Intellectuals and Race. His books are so good!

At face value it seems insignificant. Without intervention, however, the estimated global rise is between 2 and 11°F. Potentially devastating. So, given the chance to reverse the carbon emissions and temps, however slight, I'll take it. For an issue this important I'll take initiative over denial and inactivity.

Trillions. The corporations promoting carbon fraud stand to win Trillions of dollars in wealth transfer from poor people.

You are claiming the Solyndra wasted millions are just bussiness as usual, unworthy of comment?

"If you are paying people for their work, instead of paying them for what they think they need, then clearly these people wouldn't be working for Walmart..."

There are people that are forced to work in those shitholes because there is no other business open around that can compete with these heavily government subsidized Walmarts.

This idiot Marxist fell in love with his government job because the government pays idiots like him for simply being around - an ideal situation for a Marxist in the first place.

Also, the video has nothing to do with OPs post.

No, but we are fixing the problem! Wishful thinking 101; it is the thought that counts.

The lede:

Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency released the final regulations implementing President Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan (CPP). The CPP aims to cut U.S. carbon dioxide emissions from electric power generation by 32 percent by 2030. That would amount to cutting carbon dioxide emissions by 871 million tons per year below what was emitted in 2005. Of course, the goal of keeping carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere is to reduce future warming. It is thus relevant to ask, just how much warming will the president's Clean Power Plan avert? The answer is, not much.

The Cato Institute generously provided me with a grant that allowed me the time to write The End of Doom. The Institute exercised absolutely no editorial control over my reporting and analysis.

They don't need to any more, you are a good minion now.
