No, the ‘conservative response to climate change’ is not a carbon tax

We’ve often argued on this site that the real reason liberals talk about global warming – oh, sorry, “climate change” – is that it serves as a convenient excuse to implement the policies they want anyway. The public won’t support massive taxes and crushing regulation on business, so Democrats insist there is a global emergency whose only possible solution is, amazingly, these very policies.
We have to! It’s an emergency!
We are skeptical of man-made global warming, but even if it was real, we would not support the liberal prescriptions because we believe the answer would have to come from technology advancements that originate in the private sector. Want to stop global warming? Invent the clean-burning emission technology that would significantly reduce carbon emissions, and you’ll make yourself fabulously rich while solving the problem.
