Are Conservatives Embracing a Carbon Tax?

By KAYLA BARTSCH
August 1, 2019 6:30 AM  National Review



With greenhouse-gas emissions on the rise and pressure mounting for a Green New Deal, several conservative leaders have pointed to a carbon tax as a market-friendly way to minimize emissions.

Revealed: Google made large contributions to climate change deniers
Google has made “substantial” contributions to some of the most notorious climate deniers in Washington despite its insistence that it supports political action on the climate crisis.

Among hundreds of groups the company has listed on its website as beneficiaries of its political giving are more than a dozen organisations that have campaigned against climate legislation, questioned the need for action, or actively sought to roll back Obama-era environmental protections.

The list includes the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), a conservative policy group that was instrumental in convincing the Trump administration to abandon the Paris agreement and has criticised the White House for not dismantling more environmental rules.

Half a century of dither and denial – a climate crisis timeline
Hundreds of temperature records broken over summer
Almost 400 all-time high temperatures were set in the northern hemisphere over the summer, according to an analysis of temperature records.

hang on, that doesn't look right. Might be this old coal-fired plant that has been put out of service: Voerde  — about 20 km from Oberhausen

It's probably a coal power plant.

EDIT:  WRONG.  It was a coal burnin power plant.  

At first I thought it was a coal burning thermo-electric plant and was going to say something about deadly, small particulate matter and carbon emissions being highly correlated.

Then I recognized it was indeed a nuclear power plant.  Which seems to be part of the answer to reducing carbon emissions and directly improving health outcomes.

I would love the media to be more careful but when most media businesses are racing to pump out new material on a daily basis, I'll save my prayers for unicorns and cute puppy dogs.  Even famous peer-reviewed academic articles get it wrong.  

This capacity for even the smartest among us to 'get it wrong' should inform our view of risk management but apparently it does not.
