One topic is my least favorite in climate science because it relies on subjective views of the economy. Some claim to have objective quantified views but often in economics their views are often driven by the view that socialism and government control of economy will provide the necessary result. In the end, it’s just ideology from people who don’t worry about meeting payroll or selling to a new customer. There are too many smart people around for my views to dominate this thread tho.
So here’s what I propose for this thread, we assume that AGW is real and dangerous, what would the best strategy be to prevent warming? What will be the effects of the mitigation on industry, technology growth, and what effects will it have on government policy?
Also do the methods put forth from Copenhagen have any chance of achieving these goals?
It’s basically – What would you do were it all true?
