    Evidently, libertarians must not understand themselves, either, if the article is true.

    John Quigglin appears to be ignorant of what the Mises institute stands for and promotes. He wraps his article in logical fallacy expecting the reader to take his drivel seriously. It doesn't say a lot for Mr. PhD.

    OK. So point out where the Libertarians accept the scientific consensus on global warming and GHGs.

    Why that would be illogical.

    I see we have graduated from doublespeak to triplespeak. Better known as talking out of one's ass and thinking they have done something.

    Unfortunetly, the Libertarians are simply another bunch trying to create their own reality in leiu of recognizing the reality the universe presents us with. This kind of thinking is what drives the Creationists, Flat Earthers, and others that find reality unsuitable to their ideology.

    Total lie.

    Cap-n-gouge attempts to turn an entirely mythical "threat" (CO2) into currency, by the aggressive force of mob rule.

    Nobody would give you a gram of salt for a pound of CO2 in any organic marketplace.
