Richard A Epstein, Chicago Law, NYU Law, Hoover, refines the discussion on climate. . . . The children’s crusade on climate. Setting aside what the adults say, what do people [activists] get from this?   In NOAA, the lager data set looks fishy; Michael Mann’s specs look highly dubious.  If you're trying to get funding and you become an alarmist, grants will flow your direction. How many billions have been allocated this way?  
       A carbon tax is the last thing you’d want: CO2 encourages photosynthesis more than global warming.  The US produces more outputs with fewer inputs than anyone else in the world. Leave well enough alone. The Chinese and pollution.  Who gains from this?  A whole establishment of consultants; can control imagination.
