First. Let me be clear. This is not a debate regarding whether or not climate change is real. We have already had thousands of posts on the issue. A redo of the same arguments yet again would be incredibly boring. So please. Don’t.
So here’s what we know. The climate change issue seems to be way down on the list of American concerns. If it makes the list at all. The current strategy of the climate folks hasn’t been all that successful. So obviously, you need better ideas. Because these are proven losers.
Climate shaming. Insulting, shaming and ridiculing people who do not share the climate alarmists views has failed. I don’t think that shaming has caused a single person to change his opinion.
Predictions of doom. The problem with these dire predictions, is that when the deadlines are reached, the predicted catastrophe does not occur.
Redistributing wealth. The idea of sending money from rich countries to poor countries in order to fight climate change is not something that most people want. Most Americans believe that we already give too much of our money away to foreign. Nobody is excited about this.
Carbon taxes. Increasing the cost of energy with fees and taxes is probably the least popular of all. Nobody wants to be punished for heating their house, driving to work or going on vacation.
So obviously a new plan is needed to replace these proven losers. What should be the new plan to reduce carbon output?
