I don't claim to have read all of these, but Omer Aziz's editorial on a carbon tax for Canada is spot on.

Nothing convinces me of a person's brilliance more than his conformity to my own way of thinking!

And this is the idea that goes right past so called climate "skeptics": Even if we cannot know with certainty how bad climate change will be or when it will be that bad, the measures we can take now to mitigate risk are *consistent with multiple other policy goals*, such as deficit reduction and energy security. Even Charles Krauthammer supports fossil fuel taxes.

Our only hope is to change minds to see plain sense, one dumbass at a time . . .
