Proposed Session Title: Sins of the Eco-Left
Session Description:
Last year I gave a talk discussing several of the most popular arguments put forward by global warming doubters, and why they're wrong.
Mitigating climate change will be difficult, and can't be achieved without bipartisan support.
The environmental movement is currently dominated by the extreme political left. They are hostile to the idea of harnessing market forces in their solutions, which inevitably involve large expansion of the government and micromanagement of the economy, which makes the conservatives skeptical of the sincerity of their scientific conclusions.
