From where I sit we don’t NEED a Climate policy; and that is regardless of whether or not the earth is actually warming. Any government policy intent on reducing greenhouse gasses will lower the standard of living for EVERYONE in the United States and have very little actual benefit because those gasses will continue to be produced wholesale everywhere else in the world.
If the government does nothing AND the Scientists’ worst predictions come true – The seas will rise and storms will become more intense. A better approach to those problems are: 1) Adapt to a higher sea level i.e. Dikes, and other water control measures, 2) Build more durable housing.Both of these measures can be done WITHOUT forcing everyone in the United States to reduce their standard of living in a Quixotesque attempt.
China, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, are all burning Fossil Fuels at accelerated rates and stealing the jobs from this country where we have made factory operation too difficult with excessive regulations and increased costs on Energy.
