Because I have seen no evidence to support your belief that a carbon tax would be devastating, and much evidence to the contrary.

Why do you believe it will be devastating?

David, you have been shown empirical evidence that you are wrong, and you persist in your belief with no supporting evidence. I would not be calling other people blind.

If someone has to be researcher to comment on climate science, why are you?

Granted, for us amateurs, it is all an appeal to authority. On our side is the preponderance of 200 years of scientific study, and on your side is ... ?

"Much of the wholesale natural gas and electric industry in
the United States trades competitively; some markets are
established through administrative processes based on the
cost of providing service. In competitive markets, prices
are largely driven by the economic concepts of supply and
demand."

Well, actually, I do remember it, and I remember thinking that the handful of scientists who thought that were probably wrong, and that the majority who thought warming would continue were probably right.

Apparently you don't live on a planet with oceans, because on this planet they have a couple of orders more heat capacity than the air, and they continue to get warmer, nevermind that 2014 was warmer than any previous year on record and 2015 so far is hotter than 2014.

Hydro is more expensive than wind, and Kansas has more wind than Oregon. I don't know why you would expect people from Oregon to subsidize our conversion to wind since they have already invested in hydro.

You have never really explained why you prefer to let the government pick the winners and losers in the energy production sector rather than letting the market sort it out.
