Sure, Brain_Gone. Let sea level rise. It won't cost ANYTHING to move Boston, New York, Washington & all the other coastal cities 50 miles (or whatever) inland. Of course we won't know where to put them because sea level rise will be dynamic. It could average 5-10 meters per century for several centuries.<quoted text>I don't have to defame my policy opponents or make them watch hours of multimedia; the fact remains. There's a dissenting view of climate change mitigation, many disagreements on most effective tax or subsidy schemes. It's like sharks smelling blood in the water. They all want a cut.
I'm not buying in, many scientists don't believe we're doomed to catastrophic man made climate change, mass extinctions from climate change or in climate change mitigation through carbon taxes. A significant number of economists don't join the consensus either.
Lomborg says its cheaper to save lives without climate change mitigation, adapting to climate change is less expensive in the long run. Lindzen says factors other than man made carbon dioxide drives climate change. I agree with them.
The Oregon Petition lists thousands of scientists willing to petition the government against Kyoto protocol climate policy; I'm with them.
The NYC metro area alone is worth what -$20 trillion? Nah, that's nothing, easy to pay for.
Again, you & your ilk are forcing this on the rest of us, forcing us to accept ever-higher CO2 levels. You're obligated to PROVE it'll be harmless BEFORE you do it.
