  •  Except these are not random people (0+ / 0-)

    These are not the opinions of five randome people.  They are highly educated, highly accomplished, and all well-respected in their fields, all talking about a subject they know thoroughly.

    I too would not change my thinking based on the agreement of five random people, but when five well-respected economists all agree on tax policy, I think we have to consider it seriously.

    There are many reason why we could not have a carbon tax, or a consumption tax; mostly having to do with politics and not necessarily the economics involved.

    I don't know much about climate science either, but I think it is stupid when I hear people saying an agreement among climate scientists is bunk.
