Actually, he just might pay for some small part of it, if rapid climate change occurs more quickly than forecasted. He doesn’t want to pay for it, that much is obvious from this weekend’s climate disinformation piece in the Denver Post by Vincent Carroll.
He tries to couch his argument in terms of looking out for undeveloped countries’ peoples “knocking on modernity’s door”. I call shenanigans. If you’ve read his opinion pieces before, you know Carroll is someone who looks out for himself and what he can get before everybody else has a chance. I’m curious how many organizations Carroll has started or joined that works to introduce clean energy to those poor impoverished people he’d like us to think he cares so much about.
