    And yet the world's vehicles account for about 10% of all man made CO2 so if we electrified every vehicle tomorrow and stopped burning gasoline and diesel, it only drops CO2 levels by a tiny fraction.

    A lot of "mights" in there. Ronald Reagan did not believe we were burning a hole in the ozone layer with fluorocarbons. But he banned them anyways - saying it was cheap insurance in case he was wrong. The cost of being wrong on this is catastrophic. The costs of being wrong if it is not true but still acting is de minimis and actually still a lot of good things - cleaner air, water, land and not sending billions to the Middle East to fund terrorists to attack us. How much American blood have we spilled and gold taken from the treasury protecting oil in the Middle East?

    The problem is first it was "global warming" and now to fit additional narratives, it's "climate change." I'm in the camp of I think it is both a cyclical global thing AND that we're having an affect on things. I don't have a problem with instituting better climate-friendly/lower pollution policies, but don't do it to the point where you have to chop off your leg because of a mosquito bite. When you have people that propose concepts such as outlawing flying completely and not allowing people to eat meat because of cow farts - delusional and absurd ideas - how do you expect most people to react? As has been pointed out, the biggest world polluters aren't doing anything to lessen their impact, so we and other countries revert to draconian measures to cause a blip on the radar vs. what improving them would do. And I realize that's a bigger issue than just states. Reverting back to your comment, you think if California instituted a tax like that that the other states that follow California's policies wouldn't introduce the same tax?
