Some Climate Realism from The Castle
The losing climate realist, Mike Castle.... Castle supports US participation in international agreements and a cap and trade programme based on the best available science.....it is also a resounding message to any Republican in Congress - or Democrat from a conservative or oil and coal state - of the political costs of being seen to accept the science of global warming....
"Cap and trade based on the best available science" - Noooooo!
Leave aside whether the best available science shows globalwarmageddon or not; let us assume it does. It still does not say cap and trade is the answer. That is a political economic policy based on a scenario. There are other possible policies. The choice between policies is a political choice and is not science based.
(I'm taking it as read that no one believes that political economics is an actual science.)
