I treat the claims of cheap carbon capture with skepticism, but if it actually is true, then solving climate change is remarkably easy. Just implement a carbon tax and credit system with the price higher than the cost of capturing it, and then we can carry on almost as normal.

Of course, we'll need renewable sources of energy to fuel the CC plants, but that problem will sort itself out as the carbon input into the plants energy will be built into the price. As long as the price is right, then it will be cheaper to take CO2 out of the air than put it back in.

So, either we implement carbon pricing or we can fight each other over worthless Green New Deal ideas that will never happen.
