If only it were that simple. If we were just being asked to accept modest changes we could make them and be done with it. But the little policy gimmicks like an extra tax here and a curly lightbulb there don't even begin to cover what the alarmists have in mind. They want an end to fossil fuel use and a massive reduction in our living standards. If the planet really were burning up maybe we'd have to do it. But it's not. Warming is not nearly the crisis it's been made out to be. Our children will not thank us if we destroy the economy in a panicked reaction to foolish slogans about the sky catching fire then falling.
