> I don't know what to make of the "climate change is a scam to tax us for carbon use by politicians" comments in the NYT article.

I think it's one manifestation of the concern that "climate change" is just the latest example of "no crisis should go to waste" political manipulation. I'm not so concerned directly with that, but with the jump to "clearly the solution is a 100% renewable grid".

I'll be ready to contribute even more of my income to government once the approach is amended to include massive support for next-gen nuclear power, and a plan to continue the rapid expansion of the world's electric capacity.

Personally I like ThorCon's approach best, but there are plenty of other worthy contenders.
