renewable energy would lead to serious cuts in emissions, but we are at the point where we need carbon trapping technology to offset the damage already done

Carbon taxing is ineffective and does nothing other that slow the economy.

I think we can probably do so, assuming there is a good affordable alternative to fossil fuels

Nuclear is a better alternative to fossil fuels but long term we need something better, unless someone comes up with a better plan for dealing with the waste

I would've thought the anarchist in you would just view a hurricane as a good looting opportunity.

I wanted to clarify that. I don’t want to be ungovernable; I want to be a person that doesn’t need to be governed. And I behave accordingly.

I'm for removing the profit motive entirely from fossil fuels aka nationalize them

money currently going to shareholders/Board of directors is all redirected to Green Energy

we execute every CEO just cuz

it was just a joke anyway. I never knew blacks to be great swimmers until Katrina hit and I saw people doing the breast stroke with a flat screen strapped to their back.

I don't care about the fossil fuel companies but carbon taxes go far beyond them which is why they hurt the economy.

Basically I mostly see it as a distraction where as the real solution lies in technology that renders the current infrastructure irrelevant.

I agree and disagree

yes they hurt the economy

but they also reduce carbon emissions

I think it's a tough call

How much do they reduce them by, really? I don't think they even come close to making a meaningful dent.
