    Cap-and-trade was working, reducing emissions without a carbon tax! And the goose was laying golden eggs for the public treasury, giving us an array of policy choices to meet climate targets.
    WHAT’S NOT TO LIKE?!
    Keep cap-and-trade.

    The future is in solar and other renewable energy. Clinging to coal and oil is beating a dead donkey and we should be past this by now.
