regressive neoliberal taxes are a horrible idea. I'm talking about no-regrets solutions:
serious investment in technological research, development, demonstration, and deployment into the hundreds of promising technologies that will allow us to do far more with a lot less(ephemeralization)
stopping the massive wealth extraction from the developing world which prevents it from building the infrastructure necessary for adaptation, and which would allow it to create a middle class which in turn would greatly curb population growth
improving energy efficiency in the West by upgrading infrastructure, expanding public transportation, etc.
there are dozens of no regrets solutions that would not only improve our standard of living now but would also pay enormous dividends down the road even if CAGW turned out to be a false alarm. But for some reason the liberals and the commie kids and the woketard progs aren't interested in any of those, the only "solutions" they seem to be interested in are those that involve regressive taxation, onerous regulation, extreme austerity, and resource despotism. Now I wonder why that is?
