There you give away your REAL arguments. And it is an invalid one, since in many case pollution can be AVOIDED with no or small investments and careful planning.
The denailist though always uses scare mongering of economic hardship to avoid responsibility for both natural AND manmade problems.
No 'give away' I have repeatedly stated by objection to taxation without the science to support the man made global warming premise.

Economic hardships are already in place as a result of AGW. Many more are to come.

EPA regulations on commercial refits of buildings are outrageous. Adding to the cost of opening and expanding new businesses.

We just got lucky that the same level of reguired refits were rejected by congress for residential buildings. What was proposed would have smothered our residential market as people would not be allowed to sell their homes without the required updates.

When electric companies are required to purchase a percentage of their electricity from renewables at an increased cost, that increased cost will be paid by the consumer.

When the business that makes the widgets has to pay more for the electiricty to make the widgets, then the cost of widgets goes up and the consumers pays more.

If AGW is real, then the cost of combating it is undertaken to solve a problem.

If climate change is natural and not man made, then the cost of fixing something we didn't break is too much.
