So....

Are my liberal friends willing to adopt MY strategy for climate change? It would include:

1. a 100% tax on jet airplane travel

2. a 200% tax on intercontinental jet airplane travel

3. Removing all Federal restrictions on damming streams for hydroelectric generation ---especially those on wild and scenic rivers

4. Giving electric rate payers a free choice on what kind of power they want to buy:

1) low cost coal, nuclear and hydro

2) high cost renewables (subsidies eliminated)

. . .

Do you support my plan . . .


Sure. I will support every single item on it as soon as you can show even a shred of believable evidence that these things will actually address the global environmental problem and improve the condition of humanity.

Honestly, why would anyone ever take you seriously? This is not a list that is justifiable based on facts. It is a list of items that you think wiould bother people whose political views you hate. It is not aimed at addressing climate change at all. It is some sort of weird revenge plan you've cooked up. No one is going to pass such ill-conceived nonsense because . . . well . . . because it would be stupid.

. . . or do you prefer to spout left wing talking points and you don't care about climate change?

Yes. Like this nonsense proposal you've created (without a single shred of supporting evidence showing it will have any positive effect at all) is the only possible way to address global environmental change. No other course of action represents anything but "left wing talking points" and proves "you don't care about climate change".

Do you even aspire to being taken seriously or participating in an actual meaningful discussion?
