    Ms. Park: The science is not settled. I suppose that makes me a climate denier but that is OK because I might consider you a climate loonie. I do not understand how you say that the elitist intellectuals have it all wrong with monetary theory but then advocate that we believe that these same people have it correct with climate theory and telling their citizens how to live their lives.

    We went through this before in the late 70s. In the end it was as it usually is. If you want to find out what is going on, follow the money. The green thing failed then and it will fail now. If it was such a great idea Elon Musk and the solar industry would not have to get government subsidies because the smart money would be more than happy to invest.

    As far as the government using policy to incent the dumb herd, perhaps they should worry about running the government as they are hired and paid to do. Instead, they worry about picking winners and losers in business and redistributing income. Then you end up with water systems which poison the citizenry (Flint, Michigan) and bankrupt solar panel companies which taxpayer dollars subsidized.

    The average citizen is smart enough to figure out all of this and, believe it or not, does not have a death wish for the human race. If you force your politicians to properly maintain your water and road systems, and leave the rest to the people you will have a much smaller government, more of your own money and I would bet you will be much happier.

    I can’t comment on her blog so I am doing it here.

    I am disappointing by Mrs. Park expressions when it comes to this interview.

    To say that somebody denies climate change as Danielle is doing here is disingenuous.
    What does it even mean to deny climate change?

    It’s usually skeptics that know way more about climate change issues and
    problems than it’s supporters.

    Calling people that are skeptics “deniers” in face of many many lies/missteps of global warming/climate change community is same as calling herself that I am climate change liar and I want your tax money.

    Calling somebody denier without telling what he is denying is dead end to any discussion.

    Climate change (global warming) supporters are asking for billions of dollars for their cause.
    Yet they have hard time to get people to see their truth.

    I’ve wished people have picked smaller causes like clean water, clean air and so on.
    They would have easier time to get people on board and show their results.

    To say that we can influence climate change if we spend all those billions of dollars is arrogant in my book.
    I don’t think human race is that advanced yet.

    I have a feeling that somewhere down the road they will say “Ups, we were wrong and we are sorry for spending all those dollars for nothing”.

    I’ve seen that movie too many times in my lifetime.
    So no wonder I am a climate change skeptic.
