Re: Climate Is Warming And Humans Are The Cause
The Republicans likely fear higher taxes on themselves to remedy the solution...they would rather let private enterprise fix the planet.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

First, they would have to admit that what we are doing is warming the planet.

Second, private enterprise is meant to turn a profit, not fix a planet. It's a bit like using a torque wrench to measure the frequency of UV light. Wrong tool for the job. As we saw with the recent Great Recession of 2008, private enterprise will forgo the long term health of an economy in order to earn short term profits. If this is what they do to the economy, imagine what this strategy will do to the planet. The whole reason we have the EPA is because companies can't be counted on to protect the environment on their own.
