I don’t think you even read the article. The whole point was our carbon emissions decreased not because of carbon pricing but because of market forces. CHEAP GAS.
The rest of your diatribe makes no sense. I’m not against the capitalist system. I’m against those who say the capitalist system is the cause of all our problems.
I'm noticing that Oz keeps twisting the arguments into anti-capitalistic rants.

The global warming movement attracts all kinds.

From the truly devoted -- caveman...
to the strident -- hype...
to the wannabe -- spacey...
to the envious -- Oz...
to the liberal hacks -- bozo...
to the loony -- litesong.

Seems to be just a 'movement' of convenience for most to latch onto and spew their favorite talking points.

Eliminating government subsidies? That is definitely a good 'fix' for high losses to the public from 'protecting' the parasites. You must be one of the money suckers, aggrieved that you aren't getting someone else's money to compensate you for risky behavior?
I notice that most denialists are motivated by money issues. Either fossil fuel stock investment or a desire for someone else to pay the bill for their pleasure.
blah, blah, blah....

Never mind the government 'fix' didn't.

Run along... I'm sure there's some other trivial niche on the internet you can rant on.

Seriously, John Holdren? LOL. None of his predictions have been even close to being right.
They don't ever have to be right. They only need to be 95% confident that sometime they might be.

Even if they are never right, they will be right. That's pretty much how it works. They hold John Holdren up as some person to listen to even though he has never been right in his entire life.

Otherwise, stop TRYING to change our planet and embrace the benefits of a warmer climate.
Why are deniers so dumb and blind? This forum is about the man-made global warming and thus climate changing.

You as a denier are trying to change MY planet. Read the new report by the UN. Then respond with a little know-how of who's doing what.

Good grief!

Ironically, if you didn't agree with the 2007 IPCC report, you were a flat earther and holocaust denier.

Now that the IPCC doesn't agree with their 2007 report, does that make them a flat earth society of holocaust deniers?

The losses have nothing to do with AGW, but instead it was that our government that subsidized flood insurance, thus encouraging development in flood-prone areas. The federal government is basically the sole provider for flood insurance, not private insurance companies. When you make the insurance cheap for high risk areas, then you get development where there never should have been any and then that leads to increases losses which then have to be paid out by the federal government. If the insured had to pay the real cost of the insurance to live in a flood-prone area, they wouldn't build in that area. The government has suffered severe losses paying out claims after encouraging the development of these areas. Now they are getting rid of the subsidies and the people who want to live in these areas will now have to pay the price themselves instead of all us subsidizing their stupidity.

No, LOL, it makes them keepers of science sense.
